Shooting in central Italy targets foreigners from Africa

The suspected shooter that opened fire on African migrants identified as Luca Traini 28 is seen detained by Italian Carabinieri in Macerata

At least six people were injured in a series of drive-by shootings in a Italian town.

Photos from the scene show a man being put into a police vehicle, wearing an Italian flag draped over his shoulders.

The man named as Luca Traini, 28, went on a drive-by shooting rampage targeting at immigrants in various parts of the city, then drove to a monument, gave the Fascist salute, wrapped himself in the Italian flag, and awaited arrest, local media reported.

Of the other five victims, authorities said late Saturday that one was in intensive care, while the others had either undergone surgery or were scheduled to have surgery.

The update also brings the January security patch, which includes fixes for the notorious Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities. OnePlus promised 5T users that it would push out the Oreo update in early 2018 and the company has lived up to that promise.

Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera reported that the man had fired from a auto window at two young African migrants shortly after 11am local time, leaving one badly wounded before two other migrants, including a woman, were shot.

As the violent attack unfolded in Macerata in Italy's central Marche region, police told residents to stay inside and ordered a halt to public transport to limit the casualties.

The shooting in the town of 43,000 people near the east coast began at 11 a.m., La Repubblica website reported and the gunman was apprehended two hours later.

However, no official link has been made between the two incidents.

"Whether or not you agree with the government's immigration policies, we must not stoke violence", he said. A 29-year old Nigerian man, who was denied asylum last year but remained in Italy, was arrested in connection with the murder.

"For security reasons, mayor Romano Carancini calls on citizens to remain in their homes, workplaces and schools due to a risky situation that has arisen in the city because of shooting Macerata".
