Earlier, Commission of Police, Stephen Lo responded in a press release that an officer fired point blank at a protester in the 1st of October protest. Lo claimed, "the officer had warned the protesters but to no avail and he had felt that his life was in grave danger. He had no choice but to stop violence with his gun, all is legal and legitimate." He also claimed that the officers IMMEDIATELY treated the victim's wounds to save him. Our reporters recorded the incident from a different angle, which seems to speak differently of these claims. First, Commission Lo argues that the protesters had not heeded the police's warnings, causing the officer to "feel that he was in grave danger" and needed to use his gun. However, footage shows that the officer first points his gun to protester's head in front of him, then to his right, firing at a protester in less than 1 meter. This transition lasted less than a second, making it impossible for any 'warning' to have been issued. Second, Lo argues that someone had thrown a petrol bomb at the fallen protesters and police. However, footage reveals that there had only been one such object thrown, falling onto somewhere 5 meters away from them. No police officers could be seen doing anything for the protester shot at all, but were busy subduing another protester or just watching. Also, Lo argued that the police had IMMEDIATELY treated his wounds, but footage reveals that the shot protester was left on the ground for AT LEAST 3 minutes completely ignored. The shot protester was screaming "SAVE ME", yet the police officer had stayed clear away from him. Only after 3 minutes had there been an officer checking on him. For well over 5 minutes, no police officer could be seen treating his wounds.
