Description

At around 6 pm, José Picatoste was with relatives at the Astola restaurant in Villarreal de Álava/Legutiano. Two ETA members entered the establishment and waited at the bar for José María to leave the premises. As he was heading for his car with his wife, a niece and other couples, the terrorists followed him and one of them shot him four times with a pistol.
