Gambino crime family boss Frank Cali shot dead outside Staten Island home

Gambino crime family boss Frank Cali shot dead outside Staten Island home

No arrests have been made at this time.

Police and FDNY units responded to Hilltop Terrace for a report of shots fired at 9:18 p.m., according to an FDNY and NYPD spokesman.

Police confirmed the identity of Cali, who was pronounced dead at Staten Island University Hospital.

A panicked family member called 911, telling a dispatcher Cali was deliberately run over before he was shot, sources said.

Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali is said to have taken over the running of the organisation from Domenico Cefalu in 2015.

His murder is the first of a NY mob boss since Paul Castellano was famously assassinated at Sparks Steakhouse in 1985. That hit was ordered by Gotti, who later took over the family until being convicted of racketeering and Castellano's murder in 1992.

The Gambino family was once considered the biggest organised crime group in the United States, the New York Times reports, but began to decline after Gotti and other senior figures were jailed.

Federal authorities tried to put a stop to Cali's rise to power in the late 2000s, after he completed a 16-month sentence for an extortion scheme connected to a failed bid to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island.

It was a marked change from the Gotti era, which brought with its unnecessary attention and exposure.

NY media say it is the first targeted killing of a mob boss in the city since 1985. Cali was married to Rosaria Inzerillo.

He rose quickly through the ranks of organized crime, becoming a powerful capo before the age of 40, less than a decade after he became an inducted member, according to court papers.

Prosecutors claimed that Cali was the Gambinos' ambassador to the Sicilian mobsters and the go-between for the two organisations.

Among law enforcement officials, Cali was known as a "real quiet old-school boss" - one police source told the New York Post.

In June 2008, Cali pleaded guilty to conspiring to extort money and was jailed in Brooklyn, before being released the following year.
