Spain's Mijas Witnesses Another Fire Arm Incident

Mijas witnessed another firearm-related incident, adding to the spate of similar occurrences in Malaga province this year. A 51-year-old man of Moroccan origin was urgently transported to the Costa del Sol Hospital in Marbella after sustaining a gunshot wound to the buttock. According to sources , the victim claimed he had escaped captivity from a flat where he was being held.

The incident occurred early on Friday, 21 June. Around 7 a.m., emergency services received a call reporting an injured man near the Riviera taxi rank on Avenida del Golf.

Responding officers from the Guardia Civil and Local Police found the victim with a gunshot wound to his buttock. The victim stated that he had escaped from a flat where he had been held hostage for several days.

The man was taken to the Costa del Sol Hospital and, according to sources, his life is not in danger. The Guardia Civil in Mijas has taken over the investigation to clarify the circumstances surrounding this firearm incident and to determine if the victim's claim of kidnapping is true.

Though the investigation is still in its early stages, it is suspected that the incident may be linked to organized crime, as the victim reportedly has a history of drug trafficking offenses.
