A BRITISH man was in hospital after being shot in the legs on the Costa del Sol.

The 27-year-old was dropped by a friend at A&E in Marbella in the early hours of Monday.

The incident is being investigated by a Spanish police unit set up to combat organised crime.

Well-placed sources said the victim received four shots to the leg in a possible settling of scores between gangs.

Police are yet to make any official comment about the incident.

It comes a week after lockdown was eased with bar terraces re-opening.

Six Brits were held last week after a bar stabbing in Mijas Costa in which a man was left with his “guts hanging out”.

Those arrested included fugitive alleged drug dealer Zathon Williams, of Bedworth, Warwicks.

The 28-year-old became the latest Brit fugitive to be caught on the Costas after the mass fight last week.
