According to Anwar, the police were extremely fast on the spot. One police car after another had arrived-as if the officers had been prepared for something like that to happen.

Another witness, who gave his name to Sergio, said he had seen a man run down the Ramblas, followed by the police. "He dropped a black metal object, it looked like a pistol or a Taser."
