Hundreds of fans angry over the shooting death of a Lazio fan raided the headquarters of the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) in Rome on Sunday night.

The 26-year-old supporter, a disc jockey named Gabriele Sandri, was shot at a motorway service station near Arezzo as police attempted to intervene to quell trouble and a police spokesman all but confirmed media reports that the fatal bullet came from a police weapon.

Roma´s evening match with Cagliari was called off after the Eternal City club asked for it to be put back out of respect for Sandri, but an angry mob turned up at the Stadio Olimpico. Some of them armed with stones and sticks attacked one of the police units in the vicinity of the stadium before raiding the CONI building itself.
