SYOSSET, N.Y. >> Authorities are investigating a report that John "Junior" Gotti was stabbed outside a Long Island pharmacy on Sunday night.

That’s the word from Shams Tarek, a spokesman for Nassau County prosecutors. He says police and prosecutors are investigating Gotti’s alleged stabbing.

A Nassau County police spokeswoman says officers did receive a report of a stabbing Sunday night. But she would not release the victim’s name.

The victim declined to discuss details with police. It allegedly happened in the parking lot of a CVS store.

Gotti’s attorney did not immediately return a telephone message.

Gotti has been tried four times since 2005 for racketeering. Each trial ended in a hung jury. He said he left organized crime in 1999.
