Horror moment Marbella gunman pulls out weapon and shot four in row over girl

This is the horror moment when a man in Marbella pulled a gun from his trousers and shot four people in a row over a girl.

Reports suggest that a violent spat broke out between two groups of punters who had paid £4,260 for VIP tables at Opium Beach Club, on a stage behind DJ Black Coffee on Monday morning (July 18).

The alleged shooter can be seen wearing shorts and a dark t-shirt.

A witness told local paper Sur that he believed it kicked off after a girl started dancing on a different table to the one she was originally sat on.

“Everyone ran towards the beach. People thought it was a terror attack,” he said.

Police have identified a 40-year-old Dutchman as the alleged shooter.

It has been claimed he threatened a paramedic outside the venue to take him to hospital after he was stabbed in the head, back and neck by a reveller police are still hunting.

He is now being quizzed ahead of a court appearance after being released from Marbella's Costa del Sol Hospital on Monday lunchtime.

A police source said today (July 19): “The weapon used in the multiple shooting has not yet been found.

“Two people including the suspected gunman, a Dutch national aged 40, remain under arrest.

“Detectives are still hunting the man who stabbed the suspected gunman.”

It is thought that the other arrestee is the Dutchman's 26-year-old friend who helped force paramedics to take them to hospital.

Sources say two of the four victims shot at the nightclub remain in a “serious” condition in intensive care, but are improving.

They are thought to be an Irish man, 32, who was shot in the chest and a Moroccan woman shot in the rear.

A source said today: “The two people in intensive care are still serious but they are evolving favourably.”

Two male victims aged 18 and 36 have been released form hospital, police confirmed.

It is thought that the 18-year-old's wallet blocked a bullet, saving him from life-threatening injuries.

Paramedics at the nightclub on Monday also treated a youngster who had drunk himself into an ethylic coma.

Opium Beach Club remains closed, with the search for the gun being cited as one of the reasons.

Police have not ruled out the possibility that it was hidden inside the nightclub, although reports suggest they are focusing on the belief that it was passed to a third, unidentified party.

Marbella Town Hall spokesman Felix Romero has described the incident as a “one-off occurrence” and insisted: “Marbella is a very safe place.”

Juan Rambla, vice-president of a regional nightclub association, said: “Shootings like this occur in unexpected places by someone who is not alright or by members of the public no-one wants around.”
