Officials say he drove around the city in his auto for two hours shooting at migrants injuring several, at least one seriously.

Authorities say five men and one woman were shot in a drive-by spree Saturday in the central Italian city of Macerata by suspect Luca Traini, 28.

"I can't wait to get elected and restore security throughout Italy", Salvini told reporters in televised comments in the aftermath of the Macerata shootings.

Italian police also tweeted a photo of the moment of capture, saying one of the wounded had required surgery.

The Los Angeles Police Department said it is trying to determine how the 12-year-old suspect allegedly brought a gun to campus. Benjamin Urbina, who was in the classroom at the time of the incident, told reporters the suspect thought the gun was a toy.

In 2017, the shooter, Traini, ran for local office as candidate of the Northern League, a rightwing anti-immigrant party whose leader, Matteo Salvini, is aiming for the premiership in the next national election to be held March 4.

Interior Minister Marco Minniti said the killings were directly linked to "racial hatred" and said Traini had links with fascist and neo-Nazi groups.

Local media are linking the attack to the murder of an 18-year-girl whose dismembered body was found in two suitcases last Wednesday.

Police said the shooter drove around Macerata, which is famed for its outdoor opera festivals, in a black Alfa Romeo vehicle firing out of his window at migrants in various locations.

With the video gaining 5.5 million views and 109,000 shares in just a few days, it seems people are loving her frank advice. It may not have been her intention, but she is thrilled that her important message is getting out.

Italian Premier Paolo Gentiloni said Italy would be "particularly severe against whoever thinks of nourishing this spiral of violence".

Police authorities said the attack appears to be "racially motivated". "The closeness of the two events makes you imagine there could be a connection". The suspect had an Italian flag wrapped around his neck when he was apprehended by the police.

During the drive-by shooting, at lest four people were injured and all the victims are people from Africa, according to local media. The Nigerian suspect, who was denied asylum a year ago but has remained in Italy, has refused to talk to police. He confirmed all of the victims were foreigners and black. Macerata's mayor has urged citizens to stay indoors Saturday while the suspects remain at-large.

However, reports suggest that at least seven people may have been shot and wounded.
