According to several Italian newspapers, Italian producer and DJ Joseph Capriati was stabbed and is in a grave condition in Sant’Anna e San Sebastiano hospital in Caserta, where he was rushed to. The initial reconstruction of the facts indicates that last night a violent argument broke out between some family members for futile reasons and Joseph Capriati’s father allegedly grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him in the chest. Pietro Capriati, a 60-year-old man with no previous conviction, was arrested for attempted murder by the local police.

The Rapid Intervention Unit of Caserta is investigating the case. Joseph Capriati was hit in the upper chest profoundly, causing him serious and life-threatening injuries. The Italian DJ is now receiving treatment.
