Is it possible that those plumes of smoke were tear gas from before the firing began?

 
Yes, tear gas. Hard to remember anything that happened right before the shooting.

Yeah, I would say it's before the shooting, except for the smoke. Or everyone was really stunned, there were a few moments of dead silence.

What happened was that all of a sudden everyone was shooting. Everyone being the National Guard. It happened in a matter of seconds. There was silence and disbelief. Then chaos.

 
There is now evidence that an FBI paid informant fired the first shot.

Yeah sorry but if there's gunplay I'm for running away. People get hurt watching baseball games. But I guess the smoke in the photo probably is from some "pre-gunfire" shenanigans, nothing to fear.

Not to downplay the seriousness of that event but really that's not the kind of defensive posture one would expect to see when people are being fired upon.

Despite the fact they are in college people 18-22 don't always make the best/safest choice.



Not to imply that older people do. :)

The people whose backs you see were not the ones being fired on, but were a bit of a distance away.  There are some hills in that area and there were a number of "spectators" to what happened.

Having seen that footage many times, I always was amazed that any of the passengers survived.

The Kent State Massacre took place 42 years ago today. As a witness to this event, I remember it like it happened yesterday.
