His attackers continued to shoot at the house, which had six people inside, including the wife of the wounded 29-year-old  man who was carrying his young son in her arms.

Witnesses reported that the bullets grazed the little boy.

Seven members of the Los Peluos clan later left Mallorca to ‘reduce the tension’, including the wounded man.
