Description

The victim was heading to a bar close to his home with some friends. As he was about to enter the premises, two terrorists accosted José in the middle of the street. One of them fired a single pistol shot into the back of his head, which exited through one of his eye-sockets. His wife and one of his daughters were in a nearby park and were among the first people to arrive on the scene. José’s friends said that he had no particular political leanings, and was a very open-minded person.
