HONG KONG -- The morning after one of the most violent days in months of protests in Hong Kong, hundreds of people gathered at a secondary school in a show of support for student who was shot by a police officer with a live round on Tuesday.

The black-clad demonstrators -- including students, alumni and members of the public -- held slogans condemning the police violence and cheered for the wounded 18-year-old. Local media reported the student's condition has turned from critical to stable as of Wednesday morning.
