On Thursday, the co-founder of Spain’s right-wing Vox party was shot in the face after leaving his home in downtown Madrid.
Alejo Vidal Quadras, 78, was rushed to hospital in serious condition, but is expected to survive.
According to El País, the incident took place around 1:30pm on Núñez de Balboa Street in the capital’s Salamanca neighborhood, where Vidal Quadras lives.
The attackers, one of whom was described by witnesses as a “young, small man” wearing a motorcycle helmet, allegedly shot the politician in the jaw after “loitering” near his home.
