COPS SHOOT KNIFEMAN

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

HONG KONG: Po­lice shot and crit­i­cally in­jured a man who they said threat­ened of­fi­cers with a knife dur­ing a stop-and-search op­er­a­tion in a busy sub­way sta­tion in Hong Kong yes­ter­day. It is rare for po­lice to shoot sus­pects in Hong Kong, where it is il­le­gal for the pub­lic to carry firearms. Of­fi­cers in­ter­cepted a “sus­pi­cious” man in Sham Shui Po sta­tion but he then pulled a 15cm knife from his back­pack, di­vi­sional com­man­der Chow Ngai-kong said. Af­ter giv­ing him a warn­ing, a po­lice­woman shot him. – AFP
