Reputed New York crime boss shot dead outside home

New York City Police officer is seen at the scene where reported New York Mafia Gambino family crime boss Francesco Franky Boy Cali was killed outside his home in the Staten Island borough of New York City U.S

There was also a report of a blue pickup truck leaving the scene around that time.

No arrests have been made.

A caller to 911 said that as many as seven shots were heard, but police have not reported how many times Cali was hit. He was serving a 139-year prison term. The other families are the Lucchese, Bonanno, Colombo, and Genovese families.

Cali reportedly took over the Gambino crime family in 2015, according to a profile in Gang Land News.

Business Insider said Cali essentially was in charge of New York City's city's food industry and was worth an estimated $30 million. But he said it is too soon to say whether that had anything to do with Cali's slaying. His head was by his SUV, and the truck was open'.

Video showed the attacker pulling a 9 mm handgun and opening fire on Cali about a minute after they started talking, according to Shea.

News reports said Trump did lash out at Whitaker, but Whitaker said in the hearing that he did not. Cohen testified before the Oversight panel on February 27 to publicly tell his side of the story.


The Gambino Family was once among the most powerful criminal organizations in the USA, but federal prosecutions in the 1980s and 1990s sent its top leaders to prison and diminished its reach.

The last crime family boss to be shot in NY was Paul Castellano, who was also a Gambino crime boss. Gotti then took control of the family.

"We thought those days were over", the city's mayor Bill de Blasio told journalists. "Very surprising, but I guess old habits die hard".

A paparazzi darling who sported flashy suits with his signature slick pompadour, police ultimately toppled Gotti and incarcerated him for conspiracy and murder in 1992. Capeci said the killing "doesn't have the feel" of a Mafia-sanctioned hit. Paul Castellano also owned a home there. "There are exceptions, but that's not the case with his guy". As prosecutors tried and failed to bring him down, he came to be called the Teflon Don. The 70-year-old gangster was on trial for conspiring to commit murder and other crimes. Castellano was the last New York City crime boss to be gunned down, and Gotti later died in prison in 2002.

He began ascending within the ranks under capo John D'Amico, who went by Jackie and became the family's acting boss in 2005 - after which Cali became an acting captain, according to court documents.

Last October, 71-year-old Sylvester Zottola of the Bonanno family was shot dead while waiting in his auto for an order from a Bronx McDonald's. Rudy Giuliani, then US attorney for the Southern District of NY and now President Donald Trump's personal attorney, was handling the prosecution.

It is believed he only had one criminal conviction, for conspiring to extort money in 2008 for which he served 16 months in prison.
