The university issued a statement late Tuesday saying it was asking the FBI to investigate an incident involving a 19-year-old student in connection with the Monday shootings. ' The statement said Terrance B. Norman of Akron was stopped Monday afternoon by guardsmen and university police and a .38-caliber pistol was taken from him by one of the policemen. Norman explained, according to the university statement, that he had been asked by the FBI and university police to photograph the campus disturb^ ances and had been given press credentials by "thTpolicc. The statement said Norman claimed that he was attacked and beaten by student rebels and that he waved a gun when he was knocked to the ground, but didn't fire the weapon. Preliminary examination indicated the gun had not been ired, the university said. A man who identified himself as a special officer for Portage County but refused to give his name said he saw a cameraman carrying a pistol between the retreating guardsmen ner, Di Robert Syfoert, revising an earlier statement, said two of the students were shot as they faced the guardsmen and two btfiefS front tfte side.

Three *pf the students remained in critical condition after surgery at Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna. Hospital officials said one, Dean Kahler of East Canton, Ohio, was r ,paralyzed from the waist down. The university president, Dr. Robert TT~\Vhite, said he was seeking "the highest possible level of thorough and competent investigation." The university, he said, would conduct its own investigation and the asked for shootings all witnesses to to come forward. White listed several conditions he said must exist before the university can be reopened — among them the removal of an injunction barring demonstrations on the campus. He said if at all possible he wauled the National Guard re- 2tiO students remained, mostly foreign students housed jn an off-campus area.

Geiger said he saw a coed carrying books fall mortally wounded, blood pouring from her neck. "She was in a group that was not demonstrating," he said "and most of them had books in their hands. They were walking between classes." (The girl, One of two coeds killed, was Sandra Lee Scheuer 20, a junior from Youngslown Ohio. She was about 75 yards from the nearest guardsmen when she was shot.) "If. there were any shots fired before the guardsmen shot-, I didn't hear them," Gciger told a reporter, "and I didn't sec any evidence of snipers." Gciger, a junior majoring in accounting, said the guardsmen luard being up here in the tfrst place r. ••: "But you can't say that because 500 students are disrupting the campus all students are bad and declare open season on students.",; ,.
