Antoni Browarczyk, 20 years old 

Received a fatal gunshot wound to the head on December 17, 1981 in the Gdańsk city center, when the militia and army were pacifying a demonstration against the introduction of martial law. He was not a participant of the demonstration - he was returning from traineeship classes at an electromechanical plant. He was shot accidently, while waiting at a stop. He died on December 23, 1981 in the hospital.

The investigation was dismissed "due to non-disclosure of the persons who had used firearms without due caution".
