A Hong Kong police officer shot a masked protester at point blank range in a shocking skirmish broadcast on Facebook Live. The outbreak of violence happened on Monday morning at a blockaded junction in Sai Wan Ho in rush hour as a police officer attempted to arrest a masked man during a wild scuffle in the city’s 24th straight weekend of pro-democracy demonstrations. Footage showed the policeman drawing his sidearm as a second man moved towards the officer in an attempt to liberate his comrade (top right). The protester appeared to take a swipe at the officer’s pistol and just moments later he opened fire, hitting the masked demonstrator in the torso (main). As shrieks pierced the air, other demonstrators rushed at the officer who quickly fired another two rounds. The masked demonstrator he had originally tried to collar broke free in the struggle but another man went to ground as the shots were let off. Police could later be seen detaining the two men on the ground. The first man had a pool of blood next to him, his body limp and his eyes wide open as officers moved him around and tried to tie his hands
