Puerto Hurraco massacre

The Puerto Hurraco massacre was a mass murder that occurred in Puerto Hurraco, a village in Benquerencia de la Serena municipality in the Province of Badajoz, Spain on August 26, 1990, when brothers Antonio and Emilio Izquierdo fired at people in the streets with two shotguns, killing nine and wounding at least six others. The two then fled, but were arrested next morning and eventually sentenced each to 684 years in prison, where they died aged 72 and 74.
