Description

Municipal policeman Juan Rodríguez Rosales was shot in the back of the head by ETA shortly before 2 pm on 25 July 1984 in the town of Lequeitio, Vizcaya. Juan Rodríguez was on his way from his home to the Municipal Police headquarters to begin security duty at the town hall when two ETA members approached him from behind and shot him in the back of the head, killing him instantly. The ETA members had clearly been waiting for some time, since the changeover took place at exactly 2 pm. Juan Rodriguez was 48 years old, married and had three daughters.
