You see them riding two scooters, going back and forth, like in a pinball machine gone crazy. They do not have a destination, but they cultivate an objective that is too clear: to provoke. And they do it, keeping one hand on the wheel of their own scooter, another at the waist. Both have a weapon at the height of their pants: the youngest, only 17 years old, holds a machine gun in his hands; the other, the 19-year-old accomplice, has a short-barreled pistol.
It is a film that is both dramatic and banal, the one that is filed in the investigation files for the girl’s injuries. Fictional, who sees two suspects in the cell. There are stills taken from a camera, but also the testimonies of some boys from Saint Anastasiathose – to be clear – who suffered the initial challenge of two centaurs from Somma Vesuviana.
And there is already a first investigative advance. Yesterday morning, the investigating judge of the Draetta Juvenile Court validated the arrest of Giuseppe, 17, investigated together with Emanuele Civita, 19, for the ambush last Tuesday. Defended by criminal lawyer Antonio Sorbilli, the 17-year-old made use of the right not to answer; today it is Civita’s turn, who will be assisted by the lawyers Antonio Abete and Fabio Marfella. But four days into the far west of Sant’Anastasia, it is possible to get a fair idea of what happened. The reconstruction of the provincial commander by the carabinieri was decisive henry scandon and of the company of Castello di Cisterna. In summary, the two gunmen acted with premeditation and with the Camorra method. These are the aggravating circumstances challenged by prosecutors Ettore La Ragione and Antonella Serio (respectively the Minors and the DDA) against the two alleged gunmen.
It was after 11:00 p.m. last Tuesday, when two criminals materialized in via Cattaneo. They wear helmets, ride two scooters (which they will later try to make disappear) and look for trouble. They do it for no reason. They are from Somma Vesuviana, they know they have invaded another Municipality, they provoke and throw gauntlets. As? “He looked at me insistently,” says one of the witnesses, “he looked at me with an arrogant attitude. I asked what I had to look at and they turned on me.” The images do the rest, they are all too explicit. The adult can be seen getting off the scooter and pointing the gun at the face of a man larger than him, forced to step back, until he reacts, moving the barrel of the gun away from his face. In the center of the scene you can also see the minor who, in the reconstruction of the prosecutors, has a long weapon. A full-fledged machine gun.
It has not finished. Otherwise. It is only the beginning part of a kind of hell that would soon collapse over the lives of an entire family unit. The fact is that after having received the reaction of the first “rival”, the two seem to move away, to later return to being a stone’s throw from the bar and the pedestrian zone. It is at this point that ten shots are fired, in a hailstorm that reaches little Assunta, but also touches her mother (wounded in the abdomen) and her father.
The rest is history. The rush to the hospital, thanks to the willingness of a young man, is called paschal philip, unemployed and father of four children, who manages to fly to Santobono, taking the little one in his car. For him, the parliamentarian Francisco Borelli (Greens) asked for an honor, while the regional councilor severino nappi he points his finger at the social solidarity reserved for the two suspects. Now an entire community prays to see little Assunta at home again.
