A 48-year-old man shot dead three people, including a police officer, and injured five others after opening fire from his balcony in Naples, police said.

"The toll is three dead, including a lieutenant in the municipal police who was a neighbour of the shooter and was the first to intervene," a police spokesman said. The gunman surrendered to police after the shooting, he added.

Four of the five people injured were police officers who had been called to the scene.

Italian media reported that the shooter had initially barricaded himself into his flat after a dispute with his wife and had been threatening to explode gas cannisters.
