AN Afghan man wanted for shooting a rival gang member in the stomach with an AK47 rifle has been arrested on the Costa del Sol.
On Monday police in Benalmadena cuffed the international fugitive, 24, who is wanted by the Danish authorities.
Known only as WA, the suspect tried to flee in a taxi from the Parque de la Paloma de Benalmádena, before being detained, police revealed in a statement on Thursday.
His arrest comes, say police, after an ‘arduous’ investigation following the issue of an international arrest warrant.
According to cops in Denmark, WA is part of a criminal organisation and he shot a rival gang member in the stomach in September.
Police seized a forged Bulgarian driving license when they made the arrest.
