Co-owner Marco Chricio, whose father opened the restaurant, told The Post that the restaurant was caught in the crossfire between fighting gangs from the neighboring Gowanus and Red Hook housing projects, but the police said that the restaurant itself was the goal.
“Of course, it is a kind of message,” a law enforcement source said of the shooting.
The police recovered 10 shell casings across the street in the front of the Body Elite gym.
An employee said surveillance video captured by the fitness center shows a lone, hooded man on the stalking around outside around 6 p.m. when the bullets started flying.
The 35-year-old trattoria has been a mainstay for the players on both sides of the law — judges and lawyers regularly sup on the Court Street institution, but the mob ties deep.
