Update - Drive-By Shooter Shouted ‘Viva Italia’ During Arrest

As we’ve reported earlier today, a man in Italy shot down 6 African immigrants from his car in the town of Macareta.

Police have now arrested the shooter, 28-year-old Mr. Luca Traini, who was draped in an Italian Flag as security forces took him in and he shouted ‘Viva Italia’. It is alleged he also made a Nazi salute.

He was reportedly a candidate at a 2017 local election for Northern League (Lega Nord), the populist right-wing party allied with former Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi for the next elections.

Macerata's mayor Romano Carancini confirmed that six people, five men, and one woman, were shot by Mr. Traini. One of them is in a serious condition.

All of those injured were foreigners, police confirmed, and Mr. Carancini said they were black.

As already mentioned in our previous article, Italian media drew a link between the shootings and the murder this week in Macerata of an 18-year-old girl, which caused emotions in the small town to boil over.

Miss Pamela Mastropietro was chopped up and her body parts stuffed into two suitcases which were found dumped on Wednesday. A Nigerian man, Innocent Oseghale, was later arrested on suspicion of her murder. The gunman’s rampage on Saturday included the area where the dismembered corpse was found. Anti-immigrant sentiment is on the rise in Italy since the arrival of many boat migrants from Africa.
