Condition of northern mayor shot by ex-policeman worsens

Milan, July 10 - The condition of the mayor of the northern town of Cardano al Campo who was shot and seriously injured July 2 has worsened, doctors said on Wednesday. Physicians said that Laura Prati underwent six hours of emergency surgery and remains in critical condition from a brain hemorrhage that appeared on Tuesday. Prati was shot together with town's deputy mayor, Costantino Iametti, by 49-year-old Giuseppe Pecoraro, a former municipal policeman who had recently been transferred to an administrative position in the city offices following fraud and extortion probes, police said. The man allegedly told employees to stay back then entered Prati's office and opened fire. He also had a stockpile of weapons and ammunition in his car, police said. "I have settled the scores," the man reportedly said after the shooting before he fled to a nearby office building. He was eventually surrounded by police who captured him unharmed following a shoot out.
