Description

Vicente Sánchez was shot by two hooded men moments after he had dropped off his youngest daughter, aged four, outside her school. Vicente had returned to his car but before he closed the door, two hooded men, who had alighted from a nearby car, fired several shots at point-blank range. The policeman’s car, which was parked on a rise, rolled down the hill out of control for about 15 metres, eventually crashing into another vehicle. During the entire time, the other parents and children who were about to go into the school at the top of the hill saw Vicente’s body was hanging out of the open door, without falling out of the car.
