A ‘family fight’ in the Malaga town of Estepona resulted in a 35-year-old man being shot and killed.

A 35-year-old man died after being shot during the early hours of this Saturday, March 25, in the Malaga town of Estepona. His death was reportedly the result of a ‘family fight’ between a couple, according to malagahoy.es.

The incident occurred at around 5am at a home located on Camino Vereda de los Frailes. Several neighbours contacted the 112 Emergency Service, informing the operators of a fight between a woman and a man who were presumably a couple. One of them could possibly have been injured insisted the callers.

Immediately, the coordination centre deployed patrols from the National Police and the Local Police of the municipality. A mobile ICU was also dispatched to the location. After attempting to offer assistance to the injured person, the medical personnel confirmed the death of a 35-year-old man at the scene from a bullet wound to his neck.

Although the woman was initially arrested after claiming to be the perpetrator of the crime, National Police officers immediately ruled that this statement was only for the purpose of safeguarding her underage son. He allegedly fired the shotgun – which was in the family home – that caused the death of his stepfather.
