The National Police force in Spain has released new information following the incident in which several shots were fired at a café in San Pedro Alcántara last May. As a result of international cooperation, the French police have identified and arrested two alleged French male suspects, aged 20 and 30, the Malaga provincial police headquarters said in a statement.
The San Pedro shooting happened on 17 May when two hooded men opened fire on two men on the terrace of the premises. At around 2.15pm, the men approached their targets firing a shot, which hit the security lock of the establishment. The assailants' principal target ran into the bar to protect himself, and a second shot was fired, hitting a window before the hooded men fled in a vehicle. The two targets also left the area in a hurry. No one was injured in the shooting.
Subsequently, a vehicle, reported stolen in Benalmádena, was found on fire in Benahavís. According to police investigators, the car was allegedly used by the suspects in their getaway.
The police investigation, which was carried out in Spain by officers attached to the organised crime group of the Marbella police station led to the identification of the suspects.
The men arrested in France were wanted in connection with an attempted murder in Marseille, where one person was injured and had to be rushed to hospital in a serious condition.
After the detention of the two suspects in France, the French police carried out a search of a house and a vehicle, recovering a Kalashnikov assault rifle, three grenades, a shotgun, pistol, large quantity of ammunition, various amounts of hashish and marijuana and documentation, among other items.
