    The protests were brutally broken up with a death toll counts/counted/counting around

    1. The protests were brutally broken up with a death toll counts around 80.

    2. The protests were brutally broken up with a death toll counted around 80.

    3. The protests were brutally broken up with a death toll counting around 80.

    None of them. A "toll" is a "count." "... a death toll around 80."
