Hong Kong student shot by officer during protests last year has applied to drop out of school, court hears

A student charged with attempting to steal a Hong Kong policeman’s handgun and escape from custody during an anti-government protest last year has applied to drop out of school after he was shot by the officer and had parts of his damaged organs removed, a court was told.

West Kowloon Court also heard on Tuesday that the officer, who was granted anonymity by Principal Magistrate Peter Law Tak-chuen, had become a victim of doxxing and received death threats after he fired a live round at Chow Pak-kwan in Sai Wan Ho during the protest last November.

Chow, 21, appeared in the dock for the first time on Tuesday for allegedly attempting to steal the gun of the officer, named “A” in court, near the junction of Tai On Street, Shau Kei Wan Road and Shing On Street on the morning of November 11.

He was jointly charged alongside student Woo Tsz-kin, 20, with attempted robbery and wilfully obstructing a police officer. He also faced an additional count of attempted escape from lawful custody.
