Yet another shooting on the Costa del Sol; the second in just one week and on this occasion, in Mijas involving a British man.
The 39-year-old man was shot dead in his car yesterday, in the Urbanización Riviera del Sol where luxury chalets abound protected by private security guards and CCTV.
It was around 15.15h when the emergency number 112 received several calls concerning a shooting incident. Witnesses spoke of a series of shots when a car drew up alongside that of the victim and began shooting at the victim.
The first on the scene were the Guardia Civil and one of the policeman attempted CPR, keeping it up until the ambulance arrived. However, his efforts were futile.
At the same time, the Guardia Civil and Policía Local began searching for the attackers’ car. However, at the time of the writing of this article, they had not managed to locate the car or carry out any arrests.
The previous shooting took place in Marbella last Friday in the Urbanización Andasol, where one man was shot dead and another seriously injured. The dead man was of Arab origin.
