ROME (AP) — Police say an immigrant from Ghana went on a rampage with a pickaxe in Milan, killing a passerby and wounding five others in an apparently random attack.

Carabinieri paramilitary police in Milan said the attacker was taken into custody shortly after the attacks this morning in a neighborhood on the northern outskirts of the city. People working in cafes and other business near the attack told Sky TG24 TV the man swung a pickaxe, running down streets and ferociously striking passersby, mainly on the head. The motive was unclear.
