Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Till UTHBRIDGG HERALD Wodrietdsy, May 6, 1970 Investigation Into Deaths Of Students Led By FBI From Kcutcrs-AP KENT, Ohio (CP) A "less- ening of tension" today prompted authorities to with- draw 400 National Guards troops from Kent State Univer- sity, leaving 300 others to patrol the grassy lulls where four stu- dents were slain Monday. The troop withdrawals came after Ohio National Guard offi- cials admitted Tuesday they were unable to produce evi- dence that a sniper fired at guardsmen who killed the four students, two girls and two young men. They said the guardsmen fired without order's because they feared for their lives. Offi- cials earlier had said the Na- tional Guard opened fire after a sniper shot at them. On the deserted campus today were a team of FBI agents, Jus- tice Department officials and of- ficers from the U.S. adjutant- general's office, who were in- vestigating the 35 shots fired by 16 guardsmen. Nine 'students were wounded by the bullets. The slain students all were described by relatives and friends as disavowing violent protest. The university asked the FBI to investigate an incident in which a pistol was'taken from a student photographer Monday. The photographer, Terrance B. Norman, 19, was quoted in a university statement as saying he had been asked by the FBI and university police to photo- graph tile disturbances. Norman, the statement said, was beaten by demonstrator and waved the gun in self-de ence. The school said the gu had not been fired. But a ma identifying himshelf only as special officer for Portag County said he saw a camera man firing his pistol betwee the advancing, guardsmen an the crowd of students. The Kent State faculty representing full-time in structors, adopted a resolutio Tuesday to refuse to resum teaching until the Guard move out.
