A homeowner was so angry about noise being made by partygoers outside his flat he allegedly fired an arrow at them, killing a man, according to reports. Archery enthusiast Evarista Scalco, 63, had asked the group to quieten down, but was so frustrated at the disturbance that he grabbed one of three bows he kept at his home in Genoa, Italy.

The arrow allegedly hit Peruvian immigrant Alfredo Javier Romero Miranda, 40, in the liver, according to local media.

It was of a type usually used to hunt boars, police said.

He was out celebrating the birth of a baby boy with friends, drinking and watching the Champions League match between Liverpool and Napoli on Tuesday.

The construction worker, who had lived in Italy for about 20 years, was taken to hospital, but died hours later on the operating table, according to the Secolo XIX local newspaper.
