The Malaga Prosecutor’s Office has requested a sentence of 17 years in prison for each of the two men whom it accuses of a shooting with a rifle that occurred after a road chase at the height of the Malaga town of Manilva, in order to end a person’s life with which they had previous confrontations.

Thus, apparently, they used a kalashnikov-type rifle and a pistol-type short weapon; «Shots that as they were carried out over a long distance, they did not impact or cause injuries to the victim. “, says the prosecutor; after which they fled the place.
The victim was assisted by what happened in a medical center.
