The brother of a former mafia member who turned supergrass was fatally shot by two hooded men on Christmas Day , in what police suspect was a killing ordered by a clan of the powerful Calabrian mafia, the ‘Ndrangheta.

Marcello Bruzzese, 51, was killed while he was returning home in the historical centre of Pesaro, in the Italian region of the Marche.

According to the police, the killers, who were wearing balaclavas, waited near the victim’s apartment and fired at least 20 shots at him.

Bruzzese’s father, Domenico, a lieutenant of the notorious boss Teodoro Crea, was killed in 1995 in what was thought to be a mafia ambush. Marcello Bruzzese’s brother, Girolamo, joined a crime family in Rizziconi, a town in the province of Reggio Calabria.

Following an internal conflict in the family, in October 2003 Girolamo shot Crea. A few days later he went to the police and collaborated with the authorities to provide information about his former affiliates.
