A friend of Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and two other women were shot dead Sunday when a man opened fire at a Rome coffee shop.

The women were holding a board meeting for their condominium in Rome’s Fidene district when the 57-year-old gunman stormed in and opened fire, according to Italian authorities.

The suspect was overpowered and detained by other residents at the meeting. Arriving police arrested the man.

“He came into the room, closed the door and shouted, ‘I’ll kill you all’ and then started to shoot,” one witness said, according to Italian news agency Ansa.

The suspect was known to board members and had been in a series of disputes with the residents’ association, according to witnesses.

He had previously been reported to authorities for making threats against local residents, witnesses said.
