One weekend “Indian Al” murdered the wrong bookie, one connected to Mafia boss Gerry Angiulo. The Winter Hill Gang, who were allies with Angiullo, sent John Martorano to start hunting and killing “Indian Al” and his gang.
“I had been hit in the head and felt warm blood running down my neck,’’ Capizzi said. He said 100 bullets hit the car, and he had about 30 wounds from either, glass, metal, or bullets. One slug came to rest millimeters from his heart.
The killing of Alfred Notorangeli came after Martorano had mistakenly shot and killed Michael Milano, a 30-year-old North End bartender who drove a car similar to Notorangeli’s, on March 8, 1973 in Boston.
Martorano testified in the case against Bulger that he shot and killed “Indian Al” Notorangeli, from a car in 1974, while “Whitey” Bulger rode in a second car.
Indian Al was fatally shot in the head by Johnny Martorano after he made a $50,000 peace offering to Angiulo, his body was found in the boot of his car.
