AN Argentinean man has been shot dead in a Torremolinos street.

The victim, aged 20, was shot at least five times in a hail of bullets.

His body was found near a Peugeot 308 car with its doors open leading police to believe he may have been with others who fled during the attack.

No witnesses have so far come forward although neighbours reported hearing gunshots at around 8.40am in the El Pinillo neighbourhood.

Police believe it may have been drug related.
