Accounts given by eyewitnesses confirmed that that the incident occurred at the administrative block of the Villa.

The incident occurred when an operative of the Department of State Security (DSS) was attempting to empty his gun as requested by the security officers attached to the reception, since he was not among the security officers assigned to the reception.
