Mr. Abid, Mr. Mousa, Mr. Hamed, and Mr. Tawfeeek died of their gunshot wounds; the cause of death listed as "Justifiable Homicide." The eight shots also resulted in injuries to at least three unnamed detainees. Five unnamed detainees are listed in the report as victims of "Aggravated Assault (Unfounded)."
