Tough break for Tough Tony

With a bullet near his heart, "Tough" Tony Bove dropped to the sidewalk eighty-nine years ago today. Some said it was an affair of the heart that lead to the lead. Others, including Tony himself, figured it was the result of another gangland shooting from earlier in the week that resulted in three guys approaching him on the corner of James Street and New Bowery and giving him the bang.

Never heard of Tony Bove. Perhaps it doesn't matter now what the reason was for the killing. Dead is dead. Still, at the time it was probably difficult for his family. (Guess it's the writer in me, trying to see behind the headlines.)
