Gucci Leather Heir Killed Outside Office

Tue., March 28, 1995

The scion of the Gucci leather goods and fashion dynasty was shot dead outside his downtown Milan office on Monday morning by a well-dressed gunman using a silencer pistol, the police said.

Maurizio Gucci, who, two years ago, sold out his 50 percent share of the family empire, was shot twice from behind, and then twice in the face at close range. His assailant, described as being in his 40s, also wounded the building’s doorman before jumping into a waiting car.
