In the tragic episode, unfortunately, 2 brothers, aged 9 and 5, and a man of 84, who tried to protect them, lost their lives. He got in the way to avoid getting them hit by bullets.
The killer, immediately after the tragedy, he closed himself in his home. The mother was out and tried to get him to surrender to the police, for a long time. But, in the end, they found him lifeless on his bed.
From the information that some local media made known, the boy suffered from severe psychological problems. In fact he had been discharged alone 10 days ago, from a mental health center.

Massacre of Ardea, the words of the president Romano Catini
Unfortunately, they lost their lives in this tragic episode two little brothers, called Daniel and David Fusano, 9 and 5 years old. They had gone out to go to play in the park with their peers.
Salvatore Ranieri, the other 84-year-old victim, instead died instantly. He tried to to protect the two children, doing shield with his body. Romano Catini, President of the Colle Romito Consortium, stated on this event:
Why was a mentally disturbed person, repeatedly reported by neighbors for threatening them with a gun, still in possession of that weapon?
It was thought that the gun was fake, a scacciacani, it will have happened 4 times, you could hear the shots. The report, through the supervision of the consortium, had reached the carabinieri and the local police. Andrea Pignani was freaking out about nothing. I heard he had an argument with Daniel and David’s dad this morning, but for trivial reasons. He also tried to miss a fourth person, but he missed it.
