THE man accused of killing two people in a Cartagena (Murcia) drug gang shootout last week was about to receive a delivery of 500 bullets, sources say. The alleged shooter, known as ‘El Boxeador’ (the boxer) was called by the ammunition distributor who told him he would not send him the order, given what had occurred and the fact he was surrounded by the police at the time.
Shortly after this El Boxeador was shot in the stomach by a police sharp-shooter. The large amount of ammunition used during the shootout has led investigators to suspect the accused may be involved in more than low scale drug dealing.
During a preliminary hearing one of the three others arrested, David PF, revealed that he managed to escape the flat they were in with El Boxeador despite being injured because he injected himself with insulin.
The other, known as El Zubi, was allegedly shot by El Boxeador after he asked him to hand himself in.
The third man arrested, known as ‘El Reco’ was the first to escape the flat, and handed himself at the police station.
