It was not immediately clear whether Daniele Emmanuello, 43, was shot and killed in a gunfight with police or whether he died falling down a precipice while attempting to escape, the reports said.

Emmanuello, who had been on the run since 1996, was wanted on murder, extortion and drug-trafficking charges.

In a separate development, police in Naples on Monday morning arrested Salvatore Cutolo, an alleged boss of the Camorra, the Neapolitan mafia.
