Description

On 4 May 1983, the terrorist group ETA attempted to kidnap Lieutenant Julio Segarra of the National Police, planning to exchange him for prisoners from the group. They stole a car at gunpoint and broke into a garage on Plaza del Carmelo in the Santuchu district of Bilbao. It was there that they ran into the police officer, who came down at around 8 am to pick up his car and go to the Basauri barracks. They bound him hand and foot with wire and gagged him with surgical tape. Just as they were about to put him in the boot of the vehicle, Pedro Barquero, a national police corporal , and his wife, María Dolores Ledo, almost seven months pregnant, walked into the garage. Pedro drew his gun, but the terrorists stepped forward and fired on him and his wife. They then shot Julio, who was bound and gagged.
