(SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST) -- A gunshot was fired on Sunday and water cannon were deployed for the first time in Hong Kong’s increasingly violent anti-government protests.
Three police officers, who were chased and beaten by a mob of club-wielding protesters, pulled their revolvers, with one firing at least one warning shot skywards at about 8pm in Sha Tsui Road of Tsuen Wan.

No one was injured by the gunshot. It was the first time a gun had been discharged since the protests triggered by the now-shelved extradition bill began 12 weeks ago.
