Italian Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said that the suspect, who was identified as businessman Claudio Giardiello, was being held at a military police barracks. She said police caught the man in Vimercate, a Milan suburb, after he managed to travel some 25 kilometers (15 miles) on a motorcycle after fleeing the crime scene.
