THREE hooded men opened fire on two people near a Costa del Sol shopping centre close to the A-7 motorway in Spain’s Marbella before fleeing in a getaway car.
Ambulances rushed the two victims of the shooting to the Costa del Sol hospital where doctors assured them they were not at risk of losing their lives.
A witness raised the alarm on Saturday at around 12.45pm after hearing the shots ring out close to kilometre 1,046 of the A-7 in the area of Guadalmina.
They later saw how one of the victims of the attack had an injury from a shot fired at the wrist.
The 112 emergency hotline contacted the National and Local Police that soon arrived at the scene with an ambulance in tow.
National Police are now investigating the shooting, trying to find out the reasons for the attack.
By late on Saturday, Malaga police officers had still not made any arrests.
It followed the discovery of the second corpse this week in the city of Malaga.
This latest victim was in his mid-fifties and lay on La Union street until a neighbour called the police.
When the National Police and health personnel arrived at the scene, they confirmed the dead body but think he passed away from natural causes.
On October 24, police found the corpse of what they believe to be a woman wrapped in a blanket, hidden in a bush at a creek outside the city.
The body was already in a high state of decomposition but forensic scientists are hoping to find out more about her identity and cause of death.
