Here's a full timeline of the chaos at the Turlington Plaza vigil for Israel

From 1,200 people running from a plaza to police responding to reports of gunfire, then law enforcement determining what happened and what to do about a mass of lost property, more than an hour of chaos and response ensued Oct. 9 at the University of Florida.

WUFT News has outlined in extensive detail what transpired after a panicked stampede interrupted a nighttime vigil for the 1,400 Israelis killed in the Hamas attacks last month.

However, this longform video – relying on body camera footage obtained from the UF Police Department – offers a comprehensive visual and audio timeline of the vigil’s aftermath.
