Alex Pititto, the son of ‘Ndrangheta' mafia boss Salvatore Pititto, is a very jealous boyfriend.

He took his jealousy to the extreme and will be cooling off in jail.

For liking his girlfriend's picture on Facebook, Alex shot his 19-year-old pal, Francesco Prestia three times in the chest.

15-yer-old Alex saw the Facebook ‘like’ as a “lack of respect”, according to local media reports. 

He is reported to have turned himself into police and led them to the olive grove where he had left his friend’s body. 

Local media reports that the teenage mobster had long suspected his friend had feelings for his girlfriend. 

But when he saw that Francesco had ticked the ‘like’ button for a new picture on her Facebook profile he called his friend to a meeting in a remote field and gunned him down.
