The incident took place at around 12pm on Calle Blas Infante, a popular pedestrian street in Arroyo de la Miel, the town’s main commercial area. Neighbours reportedly stated that they heard the sound of a gun being fired, and soon after social media sites lit up with comments and photographs on of multiple police cars and emergency services vehicles in the area.

The man’s body was found on a landing outside a doorway to an apartment on the street by local police and a gun was found next to him. The area on Calle Blas Infante outside the apartment was cordoned off by officers as a crowd had gathered on the street.
