Thai protesters have thrown paint and sprayed water at the national police headquarters after officers deployed tear gas and water cannons against them the day before.

The protesters gathered at the Ratchaprasong intersection in the heart of Bangkok’s shopping and commercial district before they marched to the station.

The protesters chanted “slaves of tyranny” outside the building in central Bangkok while the police fortified themselves inside.

Despite the commotion, police have not made any response and have stayed indoors.

At least 55 people were injured on Tuesday’s demonstrations, six of them with gunshot wounds, according to the Erawan Medical Center in Bangkok.

The gunshots were believed to have come from police .38 Special service revolvers.
