Owner of a tyre shop in Monte San Savino in Tuscany, one Fredy Pacini, who had encountered robbers over thirty times was accused of excessive use of force in self-defense after gunning down a 29-year-old Moldovan.


Italian police launched an investigation on Wednesday following the death of an intruder who was shot after breaking into the premises of the man who had reportedly been robbed 38 times.

Pacini had taken to sleeping in his shop after a series of theft and was woken by noise in the early hours of Wednesday, according to reports.

He fired several times at the victim, who was with a partner who managed to escape, police said.

“Being a robber a a dangerous job. Am I wrong??? Self-defense is always legitimate! ” Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, head of the far-light League, said on Facebook. “My solidarity lies with the Tuscan shopkeeper who was robbed 38 times, he said.



His comment sparked a political backlash in Italy, with opponents on the left accusing him of inciting violence. But a hashtag supporting the businessman, #iostoconFredy (#I'mwithFredy), went viral on social media.
