Description

GRAPO (the Grupo de Resistencia Antifascista Primero de Octubre or First of October Anti-Fascist Resistance Group) chose 1 October 1975 to make their debut. In the early morning they perpetrated four attacks against officers of the Armed Police who were guarding bank offices in different areas of Madrid. One of them was Antonio Fernández Ferrerio, who was on duty at a branch office of the Banco Español de Crédito. At around 9.30 am, two individuals entered the office. While one of them threatened the staff, the other shot the police officer, who fell to the ground, where he was shot again. He was critically injured and died as he was being taken to the Francisco Franco Hospital.
