Five young people were injured in a shooting in the center of Reggio Emilia around 11:30 pm on Saturday: a 20-year-old is serious. It was a boy who opened fire, apparently with a modified snatch gun, after an argument with other young people for reasons still unclear. The perpetrator fled into the crowd terrified by the shots, and managed to get rid of the tracks. A few hours later he was arrested.
A clash of gangs – Apparently gangs of boys faced each other, among the frightened people. The twenty-year-old is the only one hospitalized in intensive care. However, he would not be in danger of life: he would have to be transferred to a lower intensity ward during the day and the prognosis will be dissolved.
The alleged responsible has been arrested – The policemen of the Reggio Emilia Mobile Squad then arrested the alleged responsible for the wounding of the 5 young people. This was announced by the police themselves on Twitter. The weapon used was also seized, and it was stolen.
The mayor: punish the person responsible – “Such an episode is inadmissible and that a young man should come out armed. This is not a violent city. The person responsible must be identified immediately”. The mayor of Reggio Emilia, Luca Vecchi, who arrived at the scene of the shooting told reporters. “The commander of the Local Police, Stefano Poma – told Vecchi on Facebook – alerted me because some shots were fired in Piazza del Monte. I immediately rushed to the scene together with the police and rescuers. investigations are underway and we will know more details in the next few hours, with respect to which absolute caution is required at this stage. It is however a very serious fact that cannot happen in our city. I hope that those responsible are identified as first and severely punished, because events like this must not happen and must necessarily be cut short “.
