ENGLISH contract killer, Peter O’Toole, has been found not guilty of attempting to kill a tourist in Spain.
Alan Southern was left quadriplegic in 2002 after being shot in the neck at Looney’s Irish Pub in Benalmadena.
The Malaga Provincial Court has declared there is not enough evidence to prove that O’Toole fired the shot after the only witness was unable to identify him in court.
All other known witnesses from the night at Looney’s Pub are either dead or missing.
O’Toole, who was also a named suspect in the killing of Scott Bradfield in Torremolinos, has admitted being at the bar but could not explain why he left Spain the next day.
He is currently serving life imprisonment for two shootings in the UK, killing one victim and seriously injuring another.
