The military was then barricaded inside the structure, hiding behind an armored door at the entrance to the barracks: he would limp out before being taken over by his colleagues. His condition is unknown.

Antonio Milia, the carabiniere who shot his colleague
The brigadier had fired on Thursday evening Antonio Milia, who has fired a few shots with his service pistol against the Station Commander Doriano Furceri.
Some witnesses would have heard him exclaim: “I killed him”. At least three shots fired towards the non-commissioned officer: who was in the barracks at that moment distinctly heard a shot, then the groans of the wounded man and then at least two more shots.
The departments of the GIS, the Special Intervention Group of the weapon, then intervened at the first light of dawn on Friday.
Of the brigadier, who has been serving in the town of Como for several years, we know that has three children is that he had been admitted to the psychiatry ward of the hospital of San Fermo for psychological problems and then placed in convalescence for several months. A few days ago he had been back in serviceafter being judged suitable for service by a hospital medical commission.
Doriano Furceri, the carabiniere killed in Asso
The lieutenant Furceri – as Milia married and with three children – he had instead been transferred to Asso in February, after 17 years as commander of the Bellanoon Lake Como but in the province of Lecco.
The transfer had been arranged after the non-commissioned officer had been the subject of since December last year insults and accusations with anonymous writings on the walls of the town, who denounced an alleged love affair of the commander with more than one married woman, with their respective husbands ready to go to de facto ways. Another writing instead denounced an irregular working situation for the commander’s wife.
Although obliged to remain silent, the lieutenant had confided to the Corriere months ago all his bewilderment about the affair: «Nothing is true – he assured – I’ll see whether to proceed for defamation against unknown persons. Not the revenge of jealous husbands, but just trying to get me kicked out from someone who is angry with me. I can’t imagine who it could be: I’ve never had a fight with anyone“.
It is not clear whether what happened can be related to the accusations that led to the transfer of Furceri.
