26-year-old man is dead and three injured by gunfire during football party in Naples

A 26-year-old man has been killed and three injured by gunfire during Napoli’s Serie A soccer championship celebrations.

Italian police inform the Italian news agency Ansa. The man died at a hospital in Naples after arriving at the hospital in critical condition.

The police are still investigating what exactly happened, writes the German news agency dpa.

There is no information on where the shooting took place or how it relates to the football party.

Three other people have sustained firework injuries, Italian police inform Ansa.

Pictures of packed streets in Naples are currently going around the world. Here, thousands of people take part in the celebration of the city’s first football championship in 33 years. At that time, Argentine football legend Diego Maradona was the captain.

Naples lives and breathes football, and the whole city was decorated in the light blue colors of the football team before the culmination. According to the British media BBC, the victory symbolizes more than sport – it also symbolizes the rivalry between the richer Northern Italy and the poorer Southern Italy.

The authorities have been prepared for unrest in connection with the celebration.

The US consulate in Naples issued a security warning last week, in which it was stated that spontaneous celebrations could ‘last several days’, writes the Reuters news agency.

Here, warnings were given against ‘heavy traffic or road closures, significant use of fireworks and consumption of alcohol throughout the city’.

Police had banned fireworks, but that didn’t stop fans lighting up the sky as soon as the final whistle blew in the decisive 1-1 draw with Udinese.

Authorities have also banned cars and scooters from the city center in the hope of minimizing chaos.
