Father and son arrested for shooting

The officers had aerial support in the arrest.

A FATHER and son were arrested in Marbella for shooting and trying to kill a member of a rival clan.

The victim, 30, was admitted to the Costa del Sol Hospital after being shot in the face in August in a shooting in Las Albarizas due to a long history of enmity between two families.

The two men, aged 53 and 33, both Spanish, have been remanded in prison charged with attempted manslaughter and illegal weapons possession, the National Police revealed.

The bullet pierced the right side of the victim’s jaw and travelled to the lower part of his left ear, putting his life at serious risk.

The shooting had been investigated by officers from the Specialised and Violent Crime Unit (UDEV) of Marbella National Police.

During a search of the suspects’ homes, the officers, with the support of aerial and canine units, as well as two other special divisions of the National Police, found a loader and ammunition for weapons, bulletproof vests, €5,000 in cash, a machete, a knife, a truncheon, 1.65 kilos of marihuana, precision scales and six mobile phones.
