FOUR people have been arrested following a shooting in Nerja last year.

The incident, in which three of the arrested were injured, is believed to be the result of a botched hashish deal.

After the shooting on March 26, Guardia Civil officers opened an investigation before arresting two Moroccan nationals in Torrox and Almeria for their part in the drug deal.

Another man, believed to be an associate of the gunman, was later arrested along with the assailant himself at a house in El Ejido, Almeria.

From the property officers seized a vehicle believed to have been used on the day of the shooting.

Guardia Civil, who have now closed investigations into the incident, say they are confident that both the gunman and the three injured men were involved in the dealing of hashish.
