Five partygoers have been injured in a shooting and stabbing incident at a beach club in Marbella on Spain’s Costa del Sol.

There are unconfirmed reports that one of those injured, a woman, has died.

Police told local media that four people were rushed to hospital where at least two of them are in a serious condition.

One of those hurt is a 32-year-old Irishman.

Fighting broke out at the sea-front Opium Beach Club in Marbella during a DJ set in the early hours of Monday morning.

Police said they have arrested a suspected gunman, a Dutch national, who reportedly received stab wounds to his head and chest after firing a gun into the packed club.

A spokesman for Spain’s National Police in Malaga said: “Two of the victims, a man who is Irish and a woman, are in intensive care in hospital.

“The suspected gunman is still in hospital.”

King Felipe of Spain’s nephew, Froilán de Marichalar, is thought to have been at the Marbella venue, celebrating his 24th birthday with friends. It is not known if any of them were hurt.
