Man kills 3, injures others in Rome condo board meeting shooting


Three women died and others were injured after a man opened fire during a condominium board meeting in Rome, Italy, according to authorities. 

The shooting took place in the outdoor seating area of a bar called “Il Posto Giusto,” or “The Right Place” in the neighborhood of Fidene. A 57-year-old man reportedly entered the bar, shouting, “I’ll kill you all” before opening fire, witness Luciana Ciorba, vice president of the condo board, told La Repubblica daily. 

“He came into the room, closed the door and shouted ‘I’ll kill you all’ and then started to shoot,” one witness told Italian news agency Ansa, according to Reuters.

Four other individuals were injured as a result of the shooting, with one person suffering serious injuries, according to Reuters. Italian media also reported the man was detained following the shooting.
