IRISH MAN GARY HUTCH was shot dead at a holiday resort on Spain’s Costa Del Sol on Thursday.

El Pais reports that an Irish man was shot several times at around 11.40am yesterday morning at a gated estate in Angel Miraflores Mijas, close to Malaga.

Hutch, from Dublin’s north inner city, was shot three times. It is understood that a gunman wearing a balaclava chased him around a swimming pool.

According to reports back home, the 34-year-old victim was a convicted armed robber who had moved to Spain after he was released from prison in 2007.

Reports suggest the gunman was masked and wore gloves, and that he escaped in a waiting car following the killing.

The shooting is the second in Mijas in a week according to website Euroweekly News.

A 30-year-old Colombian man was shot dead in his wife’s car in the town last week, with authorities suggesting the crime could be drug-related.

The deputy of the Malagan government Miguel Briones told El Pais that there is a line of investigation to determine whether or not the two deaths are related.
