At least three people were killed and four injured on Sunday after a man opened fire during a condominium board meeting at a bar north of Rome, Italy.

The incident took place at around 9:30 a.m. at a bar on via Monte Giberto, in the Colle Salario neighborhood, where the neighbors' meeting was being held.

One of the tenants arrived on the scene shouting "I'm going to kill you all," witnesses told L'Stampa newspaper. He then closed the door of the premises, fired at the managers and then shot at the neighbors attending the meeting.

The suspect was identified as Claudio Campiti, 57, who was arrested by Italian Carabinieri officers.

The fatal victims were three women. Injured survivors were rushed to various hospitals in the city, according to Italian media. One of the victims is in serious condition.

The mayor of Rome, Roberto Gualtieri, called a meeting for Monday with the Committee for Order and Security to discuss what he described as a "serious episode of violence that has struck our city"

Campiti committed the crime with a Glock 45-caliber semi-automatic firearm he reportedly rented from a shooting range, sources told L'Stampa. The suspect has no criminal record, but previously posted threats on social networks against those in charge of the condominium.

The motives for the shooting are still unclear.
