Maxi blitz of the Carabinieri at Zen: two arrests for attempted murder


Since the dawn of today, a maxi blitz of the carabinieri at the Zen of Palermo has been underway. In action there are one hundred soldiers, a helicopter and dog units who are beating the neighborhood on the western outskirts of the capital. The operation is aimed at combating the phenomena of crime, drug dealing or otherwise widespread illegality. Several reinforced checkpoints that are made in the main arteries as well as services carried out by carabinieri in civilian clothes, integrated by soldiers of the 12th Carabinieri Regiment "Sicily".

Two thirty-year-olds were arrested for attempted murder during the vast blitz. The soldiers of the Compagnia di San Lorenzo have implemented the order for the application of the precautionary measure issued by the Court of Palermo against Giuseppe Nicolosi, 31 years old, and Maurizio Ingrassia, 34 years old, both residing in the San Filippo Neri neighborhood, accused of illegal firearm harbor and attempted murder against a peer in December 2017.

The investigations, conducted by the Carabinieri of the Compagnia di San Lorenzo and coordinated by the public prosecutor's office, made it possible to reconstruct in particular what happened on the night between 17 and 18 December 2017, when, in a room in Viale Lazio, for futile reasons, it was a fight broke out among a dozen young people, including Nicolosi and the thirty-year-old, supported by their respective friends. Once outside the club, to settle the accounts, between opposing factions, in Piazza Gino Zappa, Ingrassia would have fired gunshots at the thirty-year-old, shot in several parts of the body. The victim, in the early hours of 18 December, went to the emergency room of a hospital in Palermo, where he was hospitalized and operated on.
