A citizen from Gela has been arrested for the crimes of triple attempted aggravated murder and possession of a firearm in a public place, with the endorsement of the investigating judge at the Gela Court. The arrest and application of the precautionary custody measure in jail were made possible by the convergence of evidence collected by the police. The man, who was initially considered to be a fugitive, eventually turned himself in at the Gela police station on the evening of October 19th accompanied by his lawyer. The public surveillance camera in the vicinity of the attack location helped identify the perpetrator.
