Former SOPRANOS actor Lillo Brancato Jr was shot and wounded in New York yesterday (11DEC05) during a gun battle that left a policeman dead.
Enchautegui was shot in the chest, reportedly by Armento. As he was dying, the officer shot Brancato twice, leaving him in critical condition in hospital. Armento, who was shot four times, has also been hospitalised in a serious condition.
Colombian-born Brancato played small-time mobster MATT BEVILACQUA in the 1999-2000 series of The Sopranos. He has also appeared in A BRONX TALE alongside Robert De Niro.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
