Gunshots were heard in the Myanmar capital Naypyitaw on Tuesday, shortly after police used water cannon on protesters for a second successive day.
Reports said that the shots sounded like those made by crowd control equipment that fire rubber bullets. It wasn’t immediately clear whether live rounds were also fired.
Protesters collected casings from the roadway, as well as small pebbles they believe the police might also be using to target them.
There were several injuries reported.
The demonstrators were protesting against last week’s military coup that seized power from the government of Aung San Suu Kyi.
