(updates previous) Milan, July 2 - Surgeons who
operated on the mayor of the northern town of Cardano al Campo
who was shot and seriously injured Tuesday morning said that no
vital organs had been damaged and that they were "cautiously
optimistic" for her recovery.
Doctors described Laura Prati's condition as "serious but
stable".
Earlier on Tuesday police captured the gunman, 49-year-old
Giuseppe Pecoraro, a former municipal policeman who had recently
been transferred to an administrative position in the city
offices following fraud and extortion probes, police said.
Prati is in serious condition after the man allegedly told
employees to stay back then entered her office and shot her with
a pistol.
He was also carrying a rifle and had a stockpile of
weapons and ammunition in his car, police said.
"I have settled the scores," the man reportedly said after
the shooting before he fled to a nearby office building.
He was eventually surrounded by police who captured him
unharmed following a shoot out.
The town's deputy mayor, Costantino Iametti, was also
injured, police said.
Prati was airlifted to the nearby Gallarate hospital and
the deputy mayor was transported to Varese hospital.
