More than 100 people were injured during Tuesday's mass demonstrations in Hong Kong

Hundreds of people held a vigil Wednesday outside the Hong Kong school of a young demonstrator shot by riot police during violent anti-Beijing protests Tuesday. The shooting and the escalating violence have raised concerns that the government is condoning the excessive use of force against pro-democracy protesters and that police officials are justifying lethal force by equating the protests with terrorism.
