Description

Colonel Luis García was returning home from his work at the headquarters of the Military Government. He was travelling in his official car with a chauffeur. When the vehicle stopped at a red light at the intersection of Calle Echaide and Paseo de los Fueros in San Sebastian, two hooded ETA members opened fire on the car, riddling it with bullets. The colonel was killed instantly. His body was found to have 16 entry wounds and seven exit wounds.
