On the morning of 28 August, Jesús María Echeveste left his home on Calle Fueros, where he lived with his wife, Milagros.

When he reached the Weekend bar, a terrorist stopped out in front of him and shot him twice with a sawn-off shotgun. Jesús María fell face down onto the back of a parked car before slipping to the ground.
