John A. “Junior” Gotti Stabbed Outside Syosset CVS

Local News, Crime

The younger Gotti has refused to cooperate with authorities after arriving at a Long Island hospital with a stab wound.

Nassau County police are investigating the stabbing of alleged former mob boss John A. “Junior” Gotti. The incident took place around 10 p.m. Sunday night in a CVS parking lot in Syosset. Gotti has since been questioned by police but has refused to cooperate with authorities.  
 
Upon Gotti's arrival, the hospital followed its usual protocol by phoning in to authorities that one of their patients was administered to the emergency room with a stab wound. Once police arrived all Gotti told them was the location of his stabbing and the time it happened. 
 
Gotti’s current location is unknown though. On Monday night nobody in the hospital was registered with the name John A. “Junior” Gotti.
 
Junior Gotti has insisted that he retired from organized crime after pleading guilty to racketeering in 1999 and serving five years in prison for it. After being released in 2005, Gotti was indicted four times for mob related charges between 2004 and 2009. Each indictment in those four years ended in a mistrial. Federal authorities gave up their chase of Gotti in January 2010 when the case’s court papers said the government decided not to proceed with their prosecution against him. 
 
Gotti is the son of former Gambino crime family mob boss John Joseph Gotti Jr. The older Gotti died of cancer in a federal penitentiary 11-years-ago while serving a life sentence for murder and racketeering.
