He was admitted to the nearby Merced Hospital in Osuna but died in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Police have confirmed the victim was a British expat while investigators hunt down those responsible.

The dead Man has only been identified by his initials – AHB.

Last year, an 80-year-old British pensioner was shot dead in her apartment on the Costa Blanca.

Concerned neighbors are believed to have called the police when they found her body after a plumber stopped by on an arranged visit and received no reply when he knocked on the front door.

Well-informed sources said the victim lived alone for several years after her husband’s death.

A source close to the investigation said the possibility that she was shot dead by burglars during a violent break-in had not been ruled out.
