Description

José Javier had arranged to meet his girlfriend in the Bikini bar, as was their custom. He sat down on a stool, unaware that he had been spotted by terrorist Fidel González García, who decided on the spur of the moment to kill the police officer. González García left the bar and went to the home he shared with two other ETA members. While one of the three waited in the getaway car, the other two entered the premises and went directly to where José Javier and his girlfriend were sitting. One of the terrorists then shot him twice in the back of the neck at close range, killing him instantly.
