Two people have been arrested for the murder of a British businessman outside of his home in Mijas.
The slaying happened last November on the 21st as the victim arrived home from the gym in his UK-plate Audi, with the gunman lying in wait.
Police confirmed that Peter Williamson, originally from Salford, Manchester, was killed after the gunman shot him seven times, once being in the heart.
Williamson lived on Calle Orfebres in Mijas, close enough to the Calahonda AP-7 motorway exit to allow the executioner his escape.
After a 6 month investigation, the perpetrator, described to be a British male also, was arrested at his home in Murcia.
It is reported that 21 kilos of cannabis was also found in the search of his home.
Another man was arrested in connection with the murder, but details are yet to be released.
Williamson, 39, had links to organised crime in the area and reports state he was being investigated for his alleged involvement in the transportation of cannabis aswell as being linked to a club in Fuengirola that was allegedly selling canabis and hashish.
The murder came after gangland shootings were deemed to be on the rise, with 25 murders taking place on the Costa del Sol last year.
One such high profile case was the recent death of local businessman Marco Yaquot, who was gunned down outside his villa in San Pedro de Alcantara in January. He was proprietor to numerous clubs and was confirmed by Spanish police to have been laundering money for the Kinahan cartel, an Irish criminal gang.
