Alleged hitman cuffed after failed mafia hit on Costa del Sol

SHOOT OUT: Calle Jacinto Benavente where the incident occurred

A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in Fuengirola.

The shooter, whose identity has not been revealed, has been hiding for the last year by squatting in various buildings across Malaga province.

The incident, which took place in the early hours of New Years Eve 2017, saw the hitman shoot the victim twice on Calle Jacinto Benavente in Fuengirola.

He fled the scene immediately and had not been seen since.

The wounded victim survived, as the bullets did not hit any of his vital organs.

Investigators say the incident is yet another act of ‘settling of accounts’ between drug trafficking mafias residing on the infamous Costa del Sol.

He is being held without bail ahead of trial.
