ALTERNATE TEXT: A chaotic scene in a town: A large group of people have gathered in the streets, with a group of soldiers to the left. The soldiers hold guns and are shooting into the crowd. One man lays in the street with another falling near him. There are buildings behind and to the left of the scene. Clouds and a few birds fill the sky. The crowds have kicked up dust from the street, while the guns have created smoke. View on Ohio Memory.
