According to the eye witness account, the soldiers came into the street and started shooting because there were barricades, not because there were protestors. The child, Sai Wai Yan, a 14 years old Hindu boy, was playing in the back alley when he was shot. The corpse was wrapped in a tarp they found nearby and take with them.
