A PEN­SIONER who fired a shot­gun at a hooker who’d re­jected him has been jailed for four-and-a-half years.

Domenico Natale, 89, ( above) waited out­side the brothel where an es­cort known as Rica worked and fired at her twice when she turned up for a shift.

Natale be­gan pay­ing for sex­ual ser­vices in 2012 after his wife was di­ag­nosed with can­cer.

But in 2017, Rica de­cided she wanted to end their ar­range­ment, and be­gan to refuse Natale’s book­ings.

On July 21, 2017, Natale drove to Brunswick’s Ro­man­tics Brothel, in Mel­bourne, where he shot at Rica, but missed both times.

He later shot him­self in the stom­ach on the side of Mel­bourne’s Calder Free­way, where he was ar­rested.

Natale pre­vi­ously pleaded guilty to four charges, in­clud­ing reck­less con­duct en­dan­ger­ing life, stalk­ing, hav­ing an un­reg­is­tered gun and threat­en­ing to kill.
