Four people have been injured in a drive by shooting in Italy

Drive-by shooting in Italy; citizens urged to stay indoors

A man's been arrested after four people were injured in a drive-by shooting in Italy.

They say he is Luca Traini, a 28-year-old Italian with no previous record.

It only came to an end once the black Alfa Romeo was blocked, at which point the driver got out donning the Italian flag, made a fascist salute and submitted himself to police without resisting arrest, reports the Ansa news agency.

According to the Il Resto del Carlino newspaper, the man - a 28-year-old local with links to the populist Northern League - fired his first shots around the Via dei Velini area and then proceeded to drive his black Alfa Romeo 147 vehicle around the city centre, targeting immigrants.

Media said at least six migrants were shot by a man driving around the city.

Hospital officials said on Saturday that of the six injured, one had been treated and released from hospital while the others had either undergone surgery or were facing operations for their injuries.

Romano Carancini, the mayor of Macerata, said all the victims were foreign nationals.




Local newspaper Corriere della Sera said schools were put into lockdown and residents warned to stay inside after shots were fired in the city center from a dark-colored auto. The President of party, Matteo Salvini, has condemned event, but has justified it by social context that Italy lives. Shortly afterwards, police said one man had been arrested. The chief suspect in that crime is a 29-year-old Nigerian.

The shootings prompted Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni to suspend campaigning for general elections set for March 4th. "We will stop it together", he said.

Italian police tweeted: "Gunshots in Macerata". As was grave what happened to Pamela.

A preliminary postmortem on the teenager could not immediately identify her cause of death.

"What was this worm still doing in Italy?"

"The left has blood on its hands", Salvini wrote in a Facebook post about the incident.

Opinion polls suggest a centre-right bloc, including the Northern League, Forza Italia and the far-right Brothers of Italy, will win the most seats but not a working majority.
