The Nation

April 14, 1986

A bomb exploded when a car door was opened outside a restaurant in Brooklyn, killing an alleged lieutenant to the reputed godfather of the nation's most powerful organized crime family, police said. Another man was severely burned and two others were slightly injured in the explosion, which reduced the car to a twisted mass of steel and broke a gas main in the quiet neighborhood. Frank Decicco, 58, of Staten Island, an alleged lieutenant to John Gotti, the reputed godfather of the Gambino organized crime family, was killed in the blast, police sources said. Frank Bellino, 69, of Staten Island, was hospitalized in critical condition with third-degree burns, an injured left leg and internal injuries, authorities said.
