Officers' condition stable after Sunday shoot out in Rome

(updates previous) Rome, April 28 - The two Carabinieri police injured in a shoot out Sunday morning in front of the capital's "Palazzo Chigi" (the premier's office) have been identified as 50-year-old Giuseppe Giangrande and 30-year-old Francesco Negri, from Tuscany. Both are in stable condition and being treated in a Rome hospital. One of the officers was struck in the neck and the other in the leg. The shooter, Luigi Preiti acted alone, sources said. The 46-year old from Calabria shot six to seven times at the two officers as premier designate Enrico Letta's cabinet was being sworn in by President Giorgio Napolitano at the presidential palace less than one kilometer away. Preiti was apprehended as he tried to escape. The two officers are being treated in a Rome hospital and are said to be in stable condition. A pregnant woman was also mildly injured, grazed by a bullet as she was walking in the center with her husband and son. She is being treated in a Rome hospital.
