Description

The victim had been watching the Sunday afternoon games of cesta-punta at the Jai Alai ball court in Guernica. At around 8.30 pm, he left the ball court with a friend from Durango and the two walked towards the victim’s car, which was parked nearby. As the municipal police officer was walking up Calle Zarraburu, he was approached by two or three terrorists who opened fire on him with a machine-gun. Alfonso Vilariño was hit nine times—six times in the chest, twice in the head and once in the neck.
