Police ramped up the violence, firing water cannons and teargas at protesters.
A small group of protesters clashed with police, fighting back and beating the police. That’s when at least three of the police pulled their guns and one fired a warning shot.
One of the officers then kicked an older man kneeling before them begging them not to fire on the protesters. The police also aimed their weapons at the journalists who were near the man.
The police also appear to have beaten and arrested this guy who wasn’t a protester for no reason.
the government abruptly ordered the closure of subway stations in what it said was an effort to contain demonstrators. But the practice angered residents who lived nearby and the police were rude to them. pic.twitter.com/LqtFmRwakW
