Three arrests in Europa Point shooting incident

RGP divers working at the crime scene
GIBRALTAR The RGP yesterday confirmed that three men had been arrested for their alleged participation in the shooting incident at Europa Point last Tuesday, when an 38-year-old off-duty member of the Gibraltar Defence Police was shot in the stomach. The RGP says that the incident does not appear to be related to the man's employment. The three men helping the RGP with their enquiries are aged 32, 34 and 37. Investigations at the crime scene, including divers, have found a gun, which is presently being tested for any connection with the incident. Searches were carried out at four homes, two shops, two business premises and a garage. Another firearm was found at one of the homes. The victim is still in hospital in Cadiz, and is conscious and in stable condition.
