Gambino Crime Boss Frank Cali Killed Outside His Home

Reputed Mafia Boss Francesco Cali Murdered Outside His Home On Staten Island

"EMS also responded to the scene and transported the victim to Staten Island University North, where he was pronounced deceased". Gotti took over the crime organization; he died of cancer, in prison, in 2002.

After his release, the feds tried to bar him from meeting with members of the Sicilian Mafia, and demanded that he avoid contact with his uncle, Giovanni Gambino - the nephew of late boss Carlo Gambino, for whom the family was named - except at weddings or holiday celebrations approved in advance.

In 2012, Cali was identified as the new underboss of the Gambino crime family.

Cali is the first mob boss to be taken out since John Gotti Sr. orchestrated the assassination of then-Gambino boss Paul Castellano in 1985, according to The New York Post.

In 2015, Cali was named boss, replacing 68-year-old Domenico Cefalu, who was forced to step down due to old age, New York Daily News and USA Today reported.

A man said by federal prosecutors to be a top leader of the Gambino mob family was fatally shot outside his home in NY on Wednesday night.

At this time, police have made no arrests and Cali's death is under investigation.

Business Insider said Cali essentially was in charge of New York City's city's food industry and was worth an estimated $30 million.

Following Castellano's murder, Gotti headed the Gambino family until his incarceration for conspiracy and murder in 1992.

Witnesses to the crime said the killers reportedly ran over Cali's body with a blue pickup truck after he was shot to make sure he was dead, according to the police, as The Daily Beast reported.

Last October, 71-year-old Sylvester Zottola, a reputed associate of the Bonanno organisation, was shot dead at a takeaway restaurant in the Bronx, New York.

Cali had been considered a unifying figure in the years after John Gotti, "Dapper Don", was convicted and sent to prison by cooperating mob witnesses, WPIX reported.

Four days before the meeting, "On The Inside" reported that Cali was the choice among his comrades, who respected Cali's strong low-key, old-world approach to doing business successfully without attracting fanfare or agita.

Last week, Carmine Persico, the 85-year-old former boss of the Colombo organisation, died after serving 33 years of a 139-year prison sentence.
