Media: 'Mafia boss's son's killed at a football celebrationMay 6, 2023
A man believed to be the son of an alleged mafia kingpin was gunned down in Naples on Thursday night, with three more people sustaining injuries. The 26-year-old was shot several times and taken to the hospital, where he succumbed to his wounds a few hours later. Costanzo had a “significant” criminal record and was the son of leading member of the Neapolitan mafia, Maurizio Costanzo. The murder took place as tens of thousands of Napoli fans celebrated a 1-1 draw against Udinese, which secured the team the coveted league title. The city authorities had deployed thousands of police officers in riot gear in advance, and more than a hundred people were hospitalized following Thursday night’s revelries. A 20-year-old woman was in critical condition after being hit by a vehicle and three police officers were also wounded.
