GIBRALTARIAN police are investigating reports that a Guardia Civil boat fired shots at a jet ski being ridden by two Gibraltarians. The incident took place on Sunday at around 7pm when the jet ski was in the Western Bay area.
According to the rider of the jet ski, the Guardia Civil vessel gave no warning before firing four shots.
He also confirmed that there was not tobacco smuggling involvement. A video  shows the jet ski being chased by the vessel and shots can be heard.
The Royal Navy Gibraltar Squadron confirmed that it had challenged the unlawful incursion by Guardia Civil vessel Rio Cedena.
A Gibraltar spokeman said “The Government has been in close contact already with the RGP in assessing the information available. The facts are in the process of being fully determined and when they are, decisions will be made as to how best to react. As initially reported, this appears to be a very serious incident.”
