WhatsAppPOLICE are investigating a gunfight that was arranged through WhatsApp.

Two rival gangs met in a park in Granada with one 19-year-old taken to hospital suffering from a severe bullet wound.

No arrests have yet been made, but Guardia Civil sources revealed this is not the first time a gunfight has been organised through the popular messaging app.

It appears one of the gangs challenged the other to the fight in various messages, stating a time and location. Several guns were fired.
