Gunman in Italy goes on shooting rampage targeting black people

Gunman in Italy goes on shooting rampage targeting black people

Traini, who had an Italian flag wrapped around his neck when he was detained, has run in local elections as a candidate of the right-wing League party, according to the center-left Democratic party, which is now in power.

One of the people wounded in Saturday's shooting said she no longer feels free to walk around the city "with peace of mind". A Nigerian migrant has been arrested in connection with the death.

A Nigerian man was charged Thursday with the brutal killing of 18-year-old Pamela Mastropietro, who was found chopped up and placed in two different suitcases near Macerata.

"What happened appears to be a completely random armed retaliation raid", Minniti said, adding that evidence indicated that while the gunman had planned the attack, he had acted alone. The injured were being treated at a local hospital.

After the shootings, Traini allegedly got out of his vehicle, made a fascist salute with a tricolour Italian flag draped over his shoulders and shouted "Viva Italia", or "Long Live Italy", and "Italy for Italians", Italian media reported.

Photographs released by police showed Traini with a neo-Nazi tattoo prominently on his forehead.

Her boyfriend said they were waiting at a bus station when he saw a man pointing something at them from a vehicle.

"I never hurt anyone. And I heard a shot: Boom!"

"I have always been comfortable here".

In the Italian city of Macerata, six people were wounded yesterday when a man opened fire from his auto. "I was talking and laughing with three other people" when she was struck by the bullet.

He also said that there was "nothing political" about Saturday's attacks in the central Italian town of Macerata, blaming them on an "insane" person. According to official statistics, foreigners account for 9.2 per cent of the city's 43,000 residents.

Berlusconi took a swipe at the European Union on Sunday for failing to share the burden of Italy's migrant arrivals, saying: "Today, Italy counts for nothing in Brussels and the world".

Italy is heading into a general election March 4, and the head of the rebranded League party, Matteo Salvini, had capitalized on the teen's killing in campaign appearances even before the shooting Saturday.

On Saturday evening Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni called for calm, insisting "hatred and violence will not divide us".

Italy has been struggling with a huge immigration inflow for the last several years, with the majority of migrants coming across the Mediterranean in smugglers' boats.

The party's leader, Matteo Salvini, distanced himself from the shooting, but said an "invasion of migrants" was at the root of a "social clash".
