A security guard and a passer-by were injured in a railway station in the centre of Bilbao last Saturday after a local politician’s bodyguard took several shots at the guard. Witnesses said the bodyguard got into an argument with the security man then fired at him three times. The security guard was wounded in the leg and a passer-by was wounded in the arm. The bodyguard, who works for a Partido Popular councillor in Portugalete, Vizacaya region, was arrested by the local police almost immediately as he tried to leave the station. At the time of going to press, the police had still not reported on the bodyguard’s motives for opening fire.
