Gennaro Bruno a associate and wanna be made guy in the Gambino crime family has been charged with racketeering including a 2002 mob hit, drug trafficking, and extortion. Bruno over the years became a proven mob associate and was allegedly part of the Gambino family crew once led by mobster Joseph “JoJo” Corrozo a powerful member and one time consigliere of the Gambino family.
The 41 year old Bruno began his criminal career as part of New York gangs and then rose in ranks to become a member of the Gambino’s. He is charged with the killing of rival Martin Bosshart in a battle over drug turf. He allegedly lured Bosshart to a location in Queens and shot him behind the head killing him instantly.
He also is alleged to have used his position in the mafia to extort protection payments from the owner of a Queens based waste carting company. If convicted he is facing a long stint in prison and definitely puts a dent in his once bright future in the New York mafia.
