He had two shots in the abdomen and a third in the chest and once stabilized was evacuated in serious condition by the SAMU to the General Hospital of Alicante , where he was intervened urgently of the injuries suffered in the shooting.
Almost at the same time, another injured person was treated at the Crevillent Health Center. He presented blows and a bullet wound but more superficial, reason why he was transferred to the Hospital of the Vinalopó in Elche and was in the custody of the Civil Guard, reports Vicente López Deltell .
A van stolen the day before in Sucina (Murcia) was abandoned yesterday in Monforte del Cid for being involved in the shooting.
Two of the suspects, of Maghrebi origin, fled in a car of the Audi brand and were intercepted by agents of the Local Police of the Murcian town of Beniel.
