An Irishman was shot dead outside a supermarket in Majorca last night.

The victim, a man believed to be aged in his 30s, is understood to have been shot a number of times in what is thought to have been a gangland attack in Santa Ponsa in Costa de la Calma shortly after 9pm.

Local reports suggested three young masked men fired from behind the victim hitting him in the back.

The man was taken to the local Espases Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
