A MAN has been shot and killed on the streets of Marbella.
The mafia-style hit this afternoon saw the victim receive several shots from a submachine gun on Calle Arturo Rubinstein.
The killers drove by on a motorbike, with the passenger on the back pulling out the lethal weapon and firing several rounds, reported Diario Sur.
The victim died in the doorway of a building known as ‘la lavadora’ – the washing machine.
Policia Nacional have taken over the investigation.
The murder is most likely a settling of accounts between rival mafia gangs.
There has been a spike in gang-related activity since Spain began easing its coronavirus lockdown in May.
Last week a young British expat was rushed to hospital in Marbella after both his legs were shot at in what police believe was a gangland warning.
Just a few days prior, a group of Brits became caught up in a huge bar brawl in Mijas after a cocaine-fuelled night went awry.
One of the six arrested was revealed to be wanted in the UK in relation to cocaine-trafficking charges.
He was taken to Madrid to be exported back home.
