Hong Kong: Suspect shoots at police attempting to arrest him over anti-govt. protests Police Senior Superintendant Li Kwai-wah told journalists in Hong Kong on Saturday, that an armed suspect who was sought by police in relation to the anti-government protests in Hong Kong, opened fire on police officers when they attempted to arrest him on Friday evening. «Today we conducted an intelligence-led... Еще operation in response to an earlier series of bomb and gun attacks. At about 9:21 p.m., we spotted the target. When our officers stopped him, he took a semi-automatic rifle from his waist and fired a single shot. Fortunately, there were no injuries to police officers or passers-by. We caught him on the spot. Then we did a search with a court warrant. Long range rifles and a large quantity of bullets were found in the room,» said Li. «Our ordnance expert gave us a provisional opinion before examining it carefully. All guns and ammunition are available and in good condition. As for your question, whether the operation has entered the final stage. No, not yet. There are also ongoing investigations and targets that are being followed,» he added. Hong Kong has been rocked by protests sparked by a now-withdrawn extradition bill since March. The rallies have since evolved into a wider movement against the government, marked by violent clashes between protesters and police.
