Shooting filmed in Marbella nightclub in which an Irishman was injured

The moment a man pulled a gun out of his pants before a shooting at a Costa del Sol nightclub that seriously injured an Irishman was caught on camera.

Spanish police confirmed this morning they were still searching for the gun – and a man who stabbed the suspected gunman before opening fire – after the photo was released at the scene.

There is no indication that the Irishman was responsible for the knife attack.

The picture shows a man in a dark T-shirt pulling the gun out of his pants. Video footage of the incident also showed a person apparently removing his shirt in preparation for a fight at Marbella’s Opium Beach Club.

Investigators have not yet commented on the new image.

Two people, including a 32-year-old Irishman who was shot in the chest, were taken to the intensive care unit of a nearby hospital after the incident in the early hours of Monday morning. The South African DJ Black Coffee performed in front of around 4,000 fans.
The founder of a Marbella-based social media site that posted the image on Monday wrote alongside the image in reference to “rabble” involved in the violence.

“Since the police say they can’t find the gun, here’s clear evidence of the pile of shit in opium last night.”

It was claimed the alleged gunman threatened a paramedic who was visiting a drunk man outside the scene of the shooting, in an attempt to get him to take him to hospital after being hit in the head, back and neck by a night owl was stabbed, say police, who they are still looking for.

A Dutchman suspected of shooting dead four people, including the unnamed Irishman and a Moroccan woman who was also taken to intensive care, is currently being questioned by police ahead of a court hearing.

He was discharged from the Costa del Sol Hospital in Marbella yesterday afternoon.

Spanish news website El Confidencial reported that the 40-year-old, said to have been born in the northern Moroccan city of Tetuan, allegedly shot and killed innocent revelers who were caught in the crossfire while enjoying a night out.

It was claimed he and a 26-year-old friend, who was also arrested, forced ambulance workers to take them to hospital after fleeing opium during the stampede that followed the stabbing and shooting and paramedics found who treated a youth who had gotten drunk and slipped into an ethylic coma.

The Dutchman was detained after medics at the Costa del Sol hospital, a five-minute drive from the scene of the shooting, told police they were treating a person injured in a fight.

The incident was understood to be an argument about a girl.

A dispute ensued between two groups who had paid €5,000 for VIP tables on the stage behind the DJs.

A witness told local newspaper Sur he believes the troubles started after a girl started dancing at a different table than the one the group she had arrived with was seated at.

He said: “Everyone ran to the beach. People thought it was a terrorist attack.”

The Opium Beach Club, due to reopen Monday noon, remains closed due to the search for the cited weapon.

Detectives have not ruled out the theory that the gun may have been hidden at the premises, although they are believed to be focusing on the possibility that it was handed over to a third person who has not yet been identified.

A police source said today: “The weapon used in the multiple shooting has not yet been located.

“Two people, including the alleged shooter, a Dutch citizen aged 40, remain in custody.

“Detectives are still chasing the man who stabbed the suspected shooter.”

A spokesman for Costa del Sol Hospital confirmed that three of the five people were treated after the Opium Beach Club incident broke.

Among them are two men, aged 18 and 36, who suffered gunshot wounds but whose condition was not described as serious. The younger of the victims is believed to have escaped life-threatening injuries when the bullet struck a wallet in his front pocket.

The hospital spokesman was unable to provide immediate information about the unnamed Irish man who was shot in the chest or a 32-year-old woman believed to be from Morocco who was shot in the back.

Witnesses said the reveler who stabbed the gunman was escorted off the stage by bouncers minutes earlier after an altercation, but returned to confront him with a weapon believed to be a knife.

Felipe Juan Froilan, the nephew of King Felipe VI of Spain, was in the audience celebrating his 24th birthday with friends.

The incident caused a stampede, with hundreds of people running towards a busy dual carriageway in front of the club and others heading to the beach below.

Marbella City Hall spokesman Felix Romero described the incident as a “unique event” and stressed: “Marbella is a very safe place.”
Juan Rambla, vice president of a regional nightclub association, added: “Shootings like this happen in unexpected places, by someone who is unwell or by members of the public who nobody wants.” Shooting filmed in Marbella nightclub in which an Irishman was injured
