Video appears to show police using long range pepper spray on a photojournalist who got too close to them.
Galileo Cheng told CNN he took the video while standing on Harcourt Road Flyover with his photographer friends.
“Basically, police first tried tear gas -- no use as Hong Kongers are used to it. Then they took out AR15 (rifles) and fired at people getting too close. I couldn’t tell the type of bullet but mostly rubber bullets or paint bullets. Bean bags is not used near PLA (Chinese People's Liberation Army Forces Hong Kong) headquarters. Crowd scattered now and gathered near Admiralty Centre side. I’m now at AIA tower near central. Situation is calmer now.”
