Description

Modesto was in the Haizea Bar with four colleagues from the Traffic Brigade. He was off duty and in plain clothes. Three terrorists, armed with machine guns burst into the bar, while another two waited outside. They opened fire, killing four of the officers and another customer who was in the bar at the time. They then shot them again as they lay on the ground. Another six people were wounded in the brutal attack.
