Maybe it was a catharsis or maybe just a fixation, but the wounds and weariness of Vietnam seemed fresh as ever Friday as thousands gathered here in driving rain for the dedication of a memorial to one of the war's most tragic but pivotal incidents. The theme was reconciliation at ceremonies marking the 20th anniversary of the day Ohio National Guardsmen shot 13 Kent State University students during an anti-war demonstration, killing four of them.

A shooting at a trucking company left two people dead Wednesday afternoon, and a suspect was arrested in Michigan after fleeing the scene in a semitrailer cab. It was unclear whether Calvin Neyland Jr. worked for Liberty Transportation in Perrysburg Township, or how he obtained the semi cab, township Det. Sgt. Robert Gates said. A tip led police to a hotel parking lot in Monroe County, Mich.

She gathered with the other students in the commons, the grassy area on the Kent State University campus between Taylor Hall and what used to be the ROTC building.

Lawyers for Charles A. McCoy Jr., 29, said he suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, and that psychiatrists found evidence McCoy did not understand right from wrong during the more than 20 shootings, one of which killed a woman.
