Manhattan Shooting Work of the Gambinos?

From the NY Times:

The brazen Monday morning shooting on a busy stretch of Ninth Avenue appeared at first to be a straightforward case of violent workplace retribution: a laid-off worker returning for revenge.

But the detectives’ understanding of the shooting, which left a 56-year-old construction foreman wounded in his contracting company’s van, grew more complicated on Tuesday with the police saying they were investigating two friends, one with ties to the Gambino crime family and to an earlier killing in Flushing, Queens. 

Detectives on Tuesday morning picked up one of the friends — a Queens man identified as Anthony Manco, 29 — as he was driving in the Rockaways in what the police characterized as the getaway car from Monday’s shooting. Surveillance video showed him on West 49th Street, moments after the shooting, getting into the same car — which the police said was stolen — and witnesses identified him as the man who fired the shot. Detectives had a partial license plate of the car.
