Bonanno associate refuses to cooperate with FBI after Bronx shooting

The son of a Bonanno crime family associate who was critically wounded in an attempted hit outside his sprawling Bronx home is refusing to cooperate with investigators, law enforcement sources said.
FBI investigators descended on Salvatore Zottola’s waterfront home in Locust Point on Wednesday afternoon, but were forced to cull surveillance footage from a neighboring yacht club because Zottola has denied them access to his houses’ cameras, sources said.
Zottola — shot three times by a still-unapprehended gunman while walking to his car Wednesday morning — is heavily sedated at Jacobi Medical Center, but has spoken enough to investigators to make clear he refuses to help, according to sources.
It’s believed, however, that the 41-year-old victim knew his attacker, sources said.
The gunman sped off in a waiting dark Nissan sedan.
