Description

Pablo Sánchez took the same route each morning to the railway station to take the train to the barracks. That day, he had noticed three suspicious-looking individuals approaching him and had tried to take cover in the station building. However, the terrorists opened fire and the officer —who was unarmed and in civilian clothes at the time— was hit by a number of rounds from a submachine gun and then shot in the head by one of the terrorists, who was unmasked.
