Shooting in central Italy targets foreigners from Africa

Italy shooting

Officials say he drove around the city in his vehicle for two hours shooting at migrants injuring several, at least one seriously.

An Italian man shot and wounded six African immigrants in what the authorities described as a racially motivated attack in the southern city of Macerata on Saturday.

The shooting suspect with right-wing political ties had an Italian flag tied around his neck as he was arrested hours later in the city of Macerata.

And video of his arrest on Twitter appears to show the gunman draped in the Tricolour before being led away by police into a van in the town's Victory Square.

Italian police tweeted: "Gunshots in Macerata".

He has been named in reports as Luca Traini, an anti-immigration activist who stood in regional elections past year for far-right party Northern League.

The shooting may have been a response to the killing of a teenager, 18-year-old Pamela Mastropietro, who was eventually found cut up and placed in two suitcases, an incident that occurred days before, according to police.

Five men and one woman were among those shot, Mayor Romano Carancini told Sky TG24, all of whom were black "foreign nationals".

Italian Premier Paolo Gentiloni said Italy would be "particularly severe against whoever thinks of nourishing this spiral of violence".

Ansa news agency reported the man made a fascist salute before his arrest. "The closeness of the two events makes you imagine there could be a connection", Carancini said. A Nigerian man had been detained over the girl's murder.

Police said one of the injured foreigners needed surgery, but gave no further details.

Witnesses said they had earlier seen Oseghale with the suitcases in which the body was found.

Macerata's mayor has advised citizens to keep inside Saturday while at the same time the suspects remain at-large. More than 620,000 migrants, many of them African, have arrived in Italy since the beginning of 2014, contributing to a growing sense among Italians that the country was taking in far more people than it could handle.

"He drove around in his auto and when he saw any black people he shot them", Marcello Mancini, a Macerata resident, told Reuters television.
