Rome, July 24 - A Rome woman was kneecapped inside her beauty salon late Wednesday. Witnesses said the shooter masked his identity with a motorcycle helmet. The victim, 59-year-old Cinzia Pugliese, was recovering in hospital. "Perhaps it's related to the same threats she got six years ago when they shot six or seven times at the security shutters, it's just that it was closed back then," said the victim's daughter. Police said Pugliese has a police record that dates back to the 1970s.
