Shot police officer transferred to specialized clinic

Rome, May 7 - The health of the paramilitary police officer who was shot in front of the premier's office in central Rome 10 days ago has improved enough that he can be transferred to a specialized clinic. Giuseppe Giangrande was to be transferred Tuesday from a Rome hospital to a neurological clinic in the city of Imola on Italy's eastern coast to treat a bullet wound to his spine. The clinic has a strong track record of caring for patients with severe brain and spinal cord injuries, as well as preparing them for an independent life. "I learned with pleasure this morning that police officer Giangrande's condition is improving....Go Giuseppe," Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno wrote Tuesday on his Twitter feed. Giangrande and a colleague were shot when an unemployed man attacked the nearby presidential palace just as Italy's new government was being sworn in on April 28. Giangrande suffered the most serious injuries of the pair after the man shot six times before he was apprehended. A woman passerby was also slightly injured when she was grazed by a bullet.
