    Hong Kong police shot a driver in the shoulder in Sha Tin on April 8, 2021, after failing to stop a speeding vehicle with an expired licence. The 5km (3.1 mile) car chase left three people injured after the driver sped off, zigzagging along roads and later driving in the opposite direction of traffic. The vehicle also ran three red lights, slammed into a bus, two private cars, two taxis and a police vehicle before being stopped by police. During a car search, officers say they found suspected burglary tools including hammers, gloves and pliers, prompting investigation on possible further crimes. The 45-year-old suspect and his girlfriend, who was in the car with a two-year-old child, are said to have criminal records and triad backgrounds.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
