Description

The two individuals who fired the shots were waiting at the corner of the office of the Provincial Savings Bank, on Avenida Sancho el Sabio, in the Amara district of San Sebastian. Each day at three o’clock, Enrique left the Telefónica office on Calle Sagrada Familia, just a short distance from the scene of the crime, and walked back to his home at No. 6, Avenida Sancho el Sabio. Eye-witnesses said that the two terrorists approached the Telefónica delegate and his bodyguard and opened fire on them without saying a word. They fired first at the bodyguard: a bullet struck police officer Antonio Gómez García in the right-hand side of the chest, puncturing his lung and exiting through the occipital bone at the back of the head, causing loss of brain matter. Another bullet, fired at point-blank range, hit Enrique Cuesta in the heart. The bodyguard died five days after the attack. Enrique was killed instantly.
