Sonny Corleone's gang was a small gang of stick-up artists led and founded by Sonny Corleone that was active in 1933 in New York City. The gang consisted of Sonny and his closest friends. They regularly stole liquor shipments from other bootleggers, such as Mafia kingpin Giuseppe Mariposa, without the knowledge of Sonny's father, Don Vito, and often gave a cut to Luca Brasi and his gang. This eventually led to the war between Mariposa's family and the Corleones. At this point, the Italian members of the gang was incorporated into the Corleone family and the non-Italian members were let go.[1]

By the end of the war, the gang was in pieces, Stevie Dwyer had defected to Mariposa and been killed, Bobby Corcoran had accidentally hit Don Corleone and been killed by Sonny for it. Vinnie Romero had also been killed in the war, causing his brother Angelo to stop working for the Corleone family.
