According to the arrested policeman’s statement, the victim tried to drive away so he blocked him in with his car. However, eyewitness tell another story.
According to these witnesses, after the collision, the policeman got out of his car with his pistol in his hand and advanced on the victim’s car. The Moroccan victim got out of his car and tried to flee on foot and got about 50 metres before the policeman allegedly shot him.
Again, according to several witness, the policeman approached the victim lying on the ground and then fired five or six times more but not all hit him although one was in the head.
As for the tests carried out on the accused at the scene of the incident, he gave a positive reading for cannabis and a negative one for alcohol.
The 31-year-old policeman had served ten years in the force and was on sick leave, but not for any psychological reasons, which was why he was allowed to carry his regulation firearm.
Lastly, the shooting took place on the Valencia/Madrid A-3 Autovia within the municipality of Fuentidueña de Tajo, which is on the Madrid side of the Madrid/Valencia regional border.
