A father and son were arrested this week, three months after allegedly shooting a 29-year-old in the head in Las Albarizas, Marbella.
The victim lived to tell the tale as the bullet passed straight through his head, albeit causing damage to his jaw (three plates were installed and he still has difficulty speaking) and leaving him deaf in one ear. No damage was caused to his brain.
It is believed that the attack was in relation to the killing of a 23-year-old in the same neighbourhood - part of an ongoing dispute between two families.
The alleged aggressors are being held without bail on charges of attempted murder.
