Giuseppe LEOTTA



Giuseppe Leotta, 32.



The corpse of Giuseppe Castorina, a pensioner, on a park bench.



Neighbours described Mr Leotta as "a strange loner", and said he had once attacked
his brother with an axe, but the episode had not been reported to police.



Giuseppe Leotta shot dead the mayor of Aci Castello and four other people in a killing spree
that initially raised the spectre of mafia or politically inspired violence.





The pain of a relative of one of the victims.



Giuseppe Leotta, a disgruntled town worker opened fire with a handgun in a town hall
in eastern Sicily, killing five people and injuring one before committing suicide.



The suspect fled the scene of the attack in the town of Aci Castello, just outside Catania,
prompting a manhunt through eastern Sicily.



The shooting caused panic in the quiet seaside town in eastern Sicily and police advised other council employees to lock themselves in their homes while the gunman was on the loose. A manhunt was launched with police helicopters, and roads outside the town were blocked.



Police in Leotta's home.



Michele Toscano, mayor of Acicastello.



Funeral services for the five were held in a town square because
the local church was too small to hold the crowd.
