Ancona, policeman shoots young man after quarrel: stopped

The officer, free from duty, fired a gunshot wounding a 20-year-old in the leg

A police officer, off duty, shot a young man and wounded him in the leg. It happened last night in Ancona. The 40-year-old man was identified and arrested. The reasons for the gesture are still unknown, which took place in via Flavia after the two allegedly had a quarrel in a disco in the Marche capital. The Flying Squad investigates the case.

According to what has been learned, after the dispute with the 20-year-old in the club, the agent returned home inviting the young man and his group to join him. But the 40-year-old was found with the gun and fired a shot at the young man.

According to a note released by the interim general directorate of the AOU, it is learned that at 4:34 today “a 21-year-old boy with a gunshot wound entered the emergency room of the Marche University Hospital life threatening; subsequently at 6:58 a 40-year-old man arrived injured with various blunt traumas, not life threatening”.

Then “two groups of people accessed the Emergency Room, presumably friends of one and the other; an altercation took place between the two groups in the Emergency Room waiting room which led to moments of tension. The timely intervention of the forces of order, private surveillance as well as compliance with the hospital’s internal safety regulations have led to a rapid return to normality”, reads the note.

The company management, “who rushed to the scene, together with the emergency room manager, found that no significant damage was recorded to the furnishings and people during the altercation and that the situation has returned to normal”. The two wounded “subject to treatment, are not in danger of life”, we finally read.
