NEW YORK (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service says it has raided a New York City car-parts shop and a Long Island mansion in an investigation involving relatives of the late mobster John Gotti.

IRS spokesman Gregory Tranchina and the U.S. attorney's office in Brooklyn declined to discuss details of the case Thursday.

The Old Westbury mansion was once the setting for the short-lived A&E realilty show "Growing Up Gotti." The show starred the Dapper Don's daughter, Victoria Gotti, and her three sons.

The Daily News ( ) says the sons run the Queens auto-parts shop that was raided Wednesday, along with the Long Island mansion.

Gotti attorney Scott Leemon said they haven't been charged with a crime and are innocent. He described them as "hard working individuals who go to work every day."
