A MAN who has survived a suspected mafia assassination is fighting for his life in the Hospital Costa del Sol tonight.

It comes just a few hours after he and an assumed associate were shot at several times in a property in the upmarket Marbella Andasol urbanisation.

His associate, who police have revealed is of Arab origin, died at the scene.

Investigators are working with the theory that the killing was a ‘settlement of accounts’ between drug traffickers.

The 112 emergency service received a ‘panicked’ call at 7.23pm, asking for urgent assistance.

He was arrested in Marbella

Policia Nacional and emergency paramedics rushed to the property to find the two men bloodied with several gunshot wounds.

One man could not be saved while the other was rushed to the hospital where he is in a very serious condition.

The homicide arm of the Policia Nacional have taken over the investigation.

It believes the killers fled the scene in a car.

No arrests have been made.

Police have yet to release any more information.

Andasol is a beachfront urbanisation in east Marbella which boasts several swimming pools and a tennis court.
