Authorities in Italy are searching for a man who shot at a security official for not allowing him to enter a supermarket without a mask. The incident happened in Finocchio, a locality close to Rome, with the man being turned away from the shop and returning minutes later with a firearm. 

The man allegedly shot at the security official but, fortunately, did not hit his mark, hitting a cabinet instead. The man escaped the scene, with police arriving shortly afterwards to investigate. The official stated that the man was Italian but not a shop regular. Authorities are using security cameras to identify the man and take the necessary actions. Investigations are still ongoing.

WATCH: Residents and activists unite to protest yacht marina in Marsaskala

Residents and activists unite to protest yacht marina in Marsaskala
Aug 22 2021 Share

Following the release of the plans for a yacht marina in Marsaskala, residents and activists alike, many from Moviment Graffiti, took to the seaside to protest the plans. In a statement posted to the activist group’s Facebook, Wied il-Ghajn residents asked Transport Malta to retract the tender immediately and cancel the plans to the locality in question immediately. 

The statement says that despite the local plan having mentioned the yacht marina for around 15 years, the government is not tied to carry out the execution of a project which, according to the statement, does not make sense.

The residents thanked the local council of Wied il-Ghajn for taking a strong position against the plan. Masked and equipped with signs, the protestors took to the bay in question for their demonstration, with the statement revealing that this is just the first protest among many should the plans continue.

Aug 21 2021 Share

While it has been revealed by Entertainment Weekly that the next ‘The Fast and Furious’ movie is set for April 2023, we may not be seeing John Cena make an appearance.

Protagonist Vin Diesel has hinted that the final arc of the globally-popular saga will be spread across two films with the all-star cast expected to make a return.

However, despite Cena’s role as Dom Toretto’s long-lost brother Jakob and his situation at the end of the move (no spoilers), Cena has yet to be approached by the production team for the final leg of the franchise.

It may be too early to determine whether or not the beloved wrestler-turned-actor will find himself in the midst of exploding vehicles and cars-turned-spaceships, it would be a shame if we don’t see him in the upcoming Fast movies.
