After being alerted by witnesses, security forces detained the shooter.
In the early afternoon, some 20 Senegalese mourners staged a sit-in on the bridge to denounce the murder.
“We’ll stay here as long as it takes. This is the third Senegalese man killed in Florence, that’s enough,” one of them told the press.
