Local elections are held in Hong Kong. Barring military intervention from Beijing, the outcome is seen as a major indicator for the political future of the protest-ridden region.
After police shoot a protester with live ammunition, Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam speaks out and labels the protesters as "selfish" for "paralyzing" the city and urges all students not to take part in protests.
An 18-year-old protestor is shot in the chest by police and taken to hospital for surgery during clashes between pro-democracy protesters and the police in Hong Kong on National Day of the People's Republic of China. Video footage shows the police officer shooting the protester as the protester tries to hit his arm with a metal pipe. This is the first reported injury from a live round.
