Officer fatally shoots Italian during highway clash between rival soccer fans

A police officer accidentally shot and killed a Lazio soccer fan Sunday while trying to quell a clash with Juventus supporters at a highway rest stop in Tuscany, authorities said.
Enflamed by the killing, about 200 fans in Rome attacked a police barracks near the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday night, the Italian news agencies ANSA and Apcom said. Armed with rocks and clubs, and with their faces covered, the fans entered the station and also smashed windows and burned cars, ANSA said.
Police could not immediately be reached to confirm the reports.
