Two Britons on a golf holiday shot by a fellow UK tourist 

Two Britons on a Costa golfing holiday have been shot after getting into a drunken fight at a bar.

One was hit in the leg and the other in the foot during an altercation that started at a pub in the popular resort of Fuengirola.

Both men were rushed to hospital after police discovered one at the scene with a pal and the other nursing his wound at a nearby hotel where he was staying.

The suspected gunman, a 42-year-old Brit who like the tourists has not been named, also received medical attention after being found lying semi-conscious on the ground with head injuries.

Sources close to the ongoing police probe said two guns were seized, one in a Volkswagen he had the keys to and another under a nearby vehicle where bullet casings were also found.

Neither of the gunshot victims’ wounds are thought to be life-threatening.

They were also arrested on suspicion of assault while under police guard in hospital, although like the suspected gunman they are yet to be formally charged.

The three golfers involved in the incident had been drinking at a popular British venue called The Seaside bar.

Staff asked them and the suspected gunman to leave after an altercation inside the bar before the violence erupted on the pavement outside.

It is not known why the problems occurred, but it is thought to be the result of a petty argument between strangers.

The spot where the shooting occurred is just a five-minute walk from a bar called Entrehoras where a British tourist was killed in December.

The holidaymakers, aged between 55 and 60, are believed to have been staying at a hotel near the pub called Las Piramides on Fuengirola seafront

A Polish man was arrested on suspicion of businessman Nadeem Aslam’s death after barricading himself inside his flat and threatening to commit suicide.

Nadeem, 42, from Solihull, West Midlands, was killed by a single punch after getting involved in a bust-up during a night out with his wife Jayne and friends.

He and his party had been at the Seaside bar before going off to find some takeaway food and then trying to get into Entrehoras.

The owner of the Seaside bar said today: ‘I wasn’t here when it happened but I know from staff that there was an incident inside which led to four men being asked to leave.

‘Whatever happened occurred outside on the street but I can’t help with any details because I was at home at the time.’ (Mailonline.com)
