In a Press Conference given by the Malta Police Force Spokesperson, in relation to last night’s shooting incident, it was announced that two prime suspects aged 19 and 18 respectively were arrested nearly three hours after the Mqabba shooting incident took place at around 23:30 last night.
In this incident, Saviour Gaffarena, aged 27 died, while his cousin, Vince Gaffarena aged 17, was found injured in a car which he was driving into Mqabba.
