Breaking news at The Olive Press


A BRITISH expat has reported a fatal shooting on Spain’s Costa del Sol this evening. 

The woman, who asked not to be named, has been left shaken after seeing  a dead body as she left the scene in her car.

The expat had arrived at Da Bruno’s in Cabopino, Marbella, to collect her takeaway order.

However minutes after arriving she claimed staff became panicked and said someone had been shot and killed in the restaurant’s car park.

The expat remained in the restaurant until police arrived at the scene just moments later.

The woman, who lives nearby, hurried to her car and drove home.

“I saw a body on the floor as I drove away,” she told the Olive Press tonight, “But it was about 50 metres away from me, I couldn’t tell you anything about the person.”

The expat added she was glad she hadn’t arrived sooner.

“Imagine if I had interrupted the shooting or if I had seen it, I would have been absolutely petrified.

“It’s awful that these shootings seem to be happening much more frequently.”

When the Olive Press contacted Da Bruno’s, a waiter said he could not confirm or ‘say anything’ after consulting his manager.
