New Kent State Shooting Tape Released Today

CLEVELAND (AP) - People who survived the shootings at Kent State are planning to release what they say is evidence that a National Guard commander gave an order to fire.

Thirty-seven years ago, four Kent State students were killed and nine were wounded in a clash with Guardsmen after several days of anti-war protests on the northeast Ohio campus.

Alan Canfora was shot in the wrist and says he has found an audio tape on which a voice can be heard yelling, "Get Set! Point! Fire!"

Canfora and others are holding a news conference at the university this afternoon to highlight the recording and distribute an enhanced version.
