May 4, 1970: 4 dead in Ohio

 

At 12:24 p.m., “members of the Ohio National Guard fired into a crowd of Kent State University demonstrators.” They fired 67 bullets at the protestors.

Odd little known fact: Chrissie Hynde, future star of the Pretenders, and the bassist/singer for Devo, were both in the crowd at Kent State that day.
