Residents in Causeway Bay said on Saturday night that they had found the casing of a live bullet in Victoria Park, which they suspect was fired by police officers.

If confirmed, it would be the second time in as many weeks that officers have fired live ammunition after facing off with protesters.

This came after some demonstrators confronted a group they suspected were police officers masquerading as protesters and a physical confrontation ensued.

More police arrived at the scene and the protesters took off. But witnesses said when the police chased off the protesters, they heard a gunshot.

The police have not yet commented on the incident.
