Northern mayor shot by former policeman dies

Rome, July 22 - The mayor of the northern town of Cardano al Campo, Laura Prati, who was shot July 2 has died. Physicians on July 10 performed six hours of emergency surgery on Prati following a brain hemorrhage while she was being treated in the Circolo di Varese hospital. 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. Prati's family said that her organs would be donated at her request.
