Two angry men in Italy - level 2

15-01-2014 06:00

A security camera video has been released. It shows two men on a scooter who stop in front of a shop and begin to shoot.

The two men shot eleven bullets at their victims. One of the victims hid in the shop and the other one ran away. When the two criminals finished shooting, they went after the man who ran away.

The video is almost two years old. Police took their time, but they have now charged the two men with attempted murder. It is thought that one of the victims owed one of the attackers a few thousand Euros. This may be the motive behind the attack.

Difficult words: victim (somebody who’s been attacked), attempt (try), owe (have to give somebody their money back), the motive behind (the reason for) .

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
