  • A bullet, believed to be from a Kalashnikov, which passed through a woman's window last year could have come from the same assault rifle

Investigations are under way to ascertain whether the stray bullet fired during a gang shootout in Malaga district of La Palmilla, which killed a 74-year-old man last week, is from the same gun of another bullet which passed through the window of a 79-year-old woman's flat a year ago.

On that occasion, the woman's curtains prevented any casualties.

Initial investigations point towards the use of a Kalashnikov assault rifle.
