Spain’s Policia Nacional is investigating the shooting.

The injured man was taken to the Costa del Sol de Marbella Hospital, but his life was not reported to be in danger. 

Sources told La Opinion de Malaga that the investigation was ongoing and that so far there had been no arrests.

There have been a number of shooting incidents in recent months on Spain’s Costa del Sol. 

In March, a 20-year-old man was taken to hospital after being shot in the knee in a bar in Marbella, while in April a 33-year-old Albanian national was shot up to five times in Guadalmina. 

At the beginning of May there was a shoot-out in Antequera, reportedly between ‘rival gypsy clans’, and some 10 days ago, a 25-year-old man was shot in the thigh in Fuengirola.
