Staten Island Italian mobster Franky Cali likely got clipped by one of his zip pals.

In mob speak, Zips are imported wiseguys from Italy. They are called that either because they don't have zip codes where these guys come from, or they talk so fast. 

In any event, when there is wet work or houses to be painted,  zips are very good at solving problems for mobsters.
