A man was shot at least 10 times and killed on a road just outside the British Council School in Madrid on Monday by unknown assailants who fled immediately after the incident, regional emergency services said.
Sources close to the investigation told Efe news that the 43-year-old victim was in a car with a woman, who was of Colombian nationality, and his partner, after dropping one or more children off at a school in Pozuelo de Alarcón, an affluent suburb to the west of the Spanish capital, when he was attacked.
An investigation was launched by the police after witness evidence pointed to two men on a motorcycle who were believed to have been behind the shooting.
Witnesses saw a man riding pillion on the motorcycle fire multiple times at the victim before the pair rode off.
The victim was reportedly able to leave his car but died on the road immediately, while his partner was left unharmed.
