Description

Manuel Fuentes lived in Santurce, but regularly went to Portugalete, where his girlfriend lived. That day he had lunch with her and at around 3.20 pm he left the house, dressed in plain clothes, to return to the barracks in Santurce. He left the building, walked to his car and got in. Two terrorists, one hooded and the other wearing a scarf, who were standing by the fence of a construction site, opened fire on him with a submachine gun and a pistol, from a distance of less than five meters.
