Gunfire erupted during protests in Thailand's capital Saturday, injuring 7 people, including an American photojournalist, and sending people scrambling for cover. The shooting broke out as government supporters clashed with protesters trying to derail nationwide elections one day before the vote begins. People caught in the mayhem crouched behind cars and ducked behind a pedestrian bridge while other fled inside a nearby shopping mall.
