A MAN was arrested last week after he shot two police officers in the northeastern town of Gava, in Barcelona province.
The officers were seriously injured in the incident which occurred last Thursday at around 4.00pm.
The two officers, aged 50 and 62, were allegedly shot with an AK-47 rifle after they approached a suspicious-looking car.
The suspect reportedly ran from the vehicle following the incident and barricaded himself in a nearby home.
He was eventually detained and the officers were taken to hospital.
The incident was not thought to be related to terrorism – a Spanish Home Office spokeswoman said: ‘With the information available, the incident in Gava is not related to terrorism.’
