"I can't wait to get elected and restore security throughout Italy", Salvini told reporters in televised comments in the aftermath of the Macerata shootings.

The suspect Luca Traini, who has no previous criminal record, was detained about two hours after the shooting rampage began from inside a black Alfa Romeo in Macerata.

And video of his arrest on Twitter appears to show the gunman draped in the Tricolour before being led away by police into a van in the town's Victory Square. Six people were injured in the attack, one of them seriously.

Local witnesses said a man fired out of his vehicle window at two young African migrants shortly after 11 a.m. (5.00 a.m. ET), wounding one of them.

The city's major, Romano Carancini, said "the closeness of these two events makes you imagine that there is a connection", according to AP.

The Mayor of Macerata has warned people to stay indoors while authorities attend to the scene. They are running against Matteo Renzi's much-splintered centre-left Democratic Party and the populist 5-Star Movement.

He didn't resist arrest and admitted he was responsible, police said.

The shootings happened just days after the dismembered body of an 18-year-old Italian woman was discovered hidden in two suitcases near Macerata.

Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni has temporarily suspended campaigning for the March 4 general election over the shootings.

Other political leaders, including Senate Speaker Pietro Grasso, said the Northern League leader has encouraged racist violence with his rhetoric in an election year.

"Gunshots in Macerata. There are wounded".

Her body was found on Wednesday and a preliminary postmortem could not immediately identify the cause of death.

"What was this worm still doing in Italy?"

"Stay at home until further notice. We will stop it together", he said.

He was allegedly found to be carrying a gun when he was arrested.

"The left has blood on its hands", Salvini wrote in a Facebook post about the incident. The center-right bloc, which includes the League, says the vast majority have no right to asylum and has promised mass expulsions if it takes power.
