Description

On the day he was killed, Ramón Coto went to a tobacconist’s shop that also sold lottery tickets on Calle Navarra in Bilbao. Ramón, who was retired, was friends with the owners and used to run errands for them to make some money. At around 1.30 pm, several members of ETA’s Orbaiceta group entered the shop. While one of them stood guard at the door, the other opened fire. Ramón was sitting on a stool behind the counter, talking to the owner and another employee and was hit several times. One of the bullets entered through his left armpit and exited through his lumbar region.
