An investigation into the incident was launched, with police stating that it may be gang related.

The news follows reports that the Spanish National Police has installed virtual shooting ranges that will make it possible to recreate real situations, design various types of practices adapted to the specific needs of the different units and obtain data for the monitoring and evaluation of the exercises, as reported on Wednesday, September 21.

In addition, they  have a management system that is integrated into databases, which will allow the automatic completion of the documentation relating to the Spanish National Police National Shooting Plan and thus optimise the management and execution of this plan.
