During the protest against the war, which were thousands of students involved in that, there was also the Black Panther movement and some of them in Chicago were very active. Well, there was a rumor that a group of the Black Panthers was coming from Chicago to Iowa City. It was just a rumor; there were none. But some people got pretty trigger-happy, and when they saw just some black students downtown at night shots were fired.
