Hi Don!:) Sorry for not answering your question! The reports are
extremely varied as Paul Novak noted! Some say 6 some 5, 3 and
1. Some say heart-attack, motor vehicle but only one article
directly says shrapnel.

Even the amount of shells fired is inconsistant. One piece I've
found that seems to be written by a Gunner is:

"Although the regiment shot 3,286 shells and the unit failed to
down any enemy planes."

Although the total number quoted at the SF Museum is 1440 shells
in total! There seems to be nothing of the incident mentioned at
official army & navy history archives. I believe the information
is still classified by Joseph Trainors statement here:

"(Editor's Comment:  Maybe the gang at the Black Vault could use
the Freedom of Information Act to get the Army's Situation
Reports for February 25, 1942 for the 65th and 205th A.A.
Regiments. Wouldn't that be interesting reading!)"


I've sent a request for the photo, it'll be interesting to see
what happens as even an article on the subject, written by the
LA Inquirer last year, which is owned by the LA Times, seem to
have been removed from their archive?
