31. On reflection you are right--no deaths is dorms.
As I recall there were wounds and deaths in parking lots far from the center of violence.

Still, as a soldier (unwilling I might add) I soldiered 24/7 with 40 plus hours a week of riot and confrontation training and never was issued live ammunition. The root of the tragedy lies in the chain of command and placing untrained people in a situation that begs for violence.

I thank you for the post and the research you did. This is vital to prevent such tragic events from happening again.

Just know that professional soldiers at the time were most upset over the event.

Event. What a sad word for what happened.
