Disturbing video: Man shot in botched mob hit in Bronx, police say
A reputed mobster from the Bronx survived a point-blank ambush on Friday morning.
The ambush happened 6:30 a.m. along Tierney Place in Throggs Neck. A red Nissan sedan made a u-turn, eventually stopping near the home of alleged mobster Salvatore Zottola.
Zottola stepped out of his parked mini-van and ran for cover as a gunman emerged from the car and started firing. The 41-year-old eventually made his way back to the car and took off. He then began rolling in the street as the gunman continued to fire just feet away. The harrowing scene was all caught on tape.
Somehow, Zottola survived the ambush with gunshot wounds to his chest and right hand, and a graze wound to the head. He was taken to the hospital in critical, but stable condition.
