A man, said to be in his 50s, died after being shot several times. Three other people were wounded, including one suffering from serious injuries, the news site said. 

A spokesman with Catalonia's regional police told The Associated Press the incident was under investigation, adding that authorities had ruled out terror as a possible motive. 

Incidents involving firearms are rare in Spain. Spanish law doesn't specifically prohibit people from owning guns, but makes it difficult for someone to obtain one.
