Madrid was the scene on Thursday evening of a shooting and a fight with knives between two rival street gangs.
According to the newspaper El Mundo, the shooting between two "Latin gangs" took place outside a pub in the Ciudad Lineal district.
The fight started inside the pub. After the brawl, several people fled from the interior, while being pursued by others.
In a video recorded by a neighbour and posted in Twitter by the police union JUPOL, a man can be seen taking out a pistol and shooting in the middle of the street at several young people who run away. At least six shots can be heard in the recording.
🚨Nos envían unas imágenes muy preocupantes. Se trataría de un tiroteo en Ciudad Lineal #Madrid.
🔫Presumiblemente es un ajuste de cuentas entre bandas.
⚠️Las bandas son un PROBLEMA que debe ser atajado con la máxima contundencia.
