John “Junior” Gotti, former Gambino crime family boss walked into a Long Island hospital clutching his bleeding gut Sunday night and calmly asked stunned staffers for a doctor, officials said.
Syosset Hospital employees called Nassau County police at 9:45 p.m. after the former mob star claimed he got stabbed in the stomach after breaking up a fight between strangers in the parking lot of a CVS pharmacy, DA sources said.
But the son of late “Dapper Don” John Gotti quickly clammed up when Nassau County cops interviewed him at the hospital and became politely “uncooperative” sources said.
“He didn’t say anything to us so there was really no lead to track down at that point,” a police source said.
Authorities are privately suspicious of the Good Samaritan story, sources said.
The Nassau district attorney is investigating the stabbing and plans to speak to CVS employees and to check for any surveillance footage of the purported melee.
A source said that Gotti is under no obligation to cough up information about the details of the incident but that a prosecution can still pursue the incident without his assistance.
Gotti’s injuries were not life-threatening and he was released Monday, sources said.
