Reputed Boss Of Gambino Crime Family Gunned Down In New York

The New York Post reported that police sources said the shooter hit Cali with multiple bullets and a 911 caller said they heard six or seven shots.

The gunman sped off in a blue pickup truck after the hit, which one source described as "disrespectful" because it took place near his family home in an outer borough.

Medics arrived at the scene and transported Cali to Staten Island University North, where he was pronounced dead. He said the shots were all the same volume, as if fired from the same gun.

Cali is thought to have taken the helm of the Gambino family in 2015, replacing Domenico Cefalu.

In 1992, Gotti was convicted in Castellano's murder and a multitude of other crimes.

Francesco Cali, believed to be the boss of the notorious Gambino crime family, was killed on Staten Island late Wednesday, the New York Police Department said.

"Within recent months one of John Gotti brothers, Eugene Gotti, came out of federal prison".

Last week, Carmine Persico, the former boss of New York's Colombo organisation, died after serving 33 years of a 139-year prison sentence.

Gambino family mobster Francesco "Frank" Cali has been murdered in what local media say is the first major NY gang killing in more than 30 years.

Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said there has been a slight urise in alleged mob-related violence in NY within the past year.

Paul Castellano, the Gambino family head at that time, was shot in the street on Manhattan's East Side. "But I guess old habits die hard".

He also had close ties through marriage to the Inzerillo family in Palermo, Sicily, having married Rosaria Inzerillo, a sister of Pietro Inzerillo and a relative of Gambino associate Frank Inzerillo.

One of the most notorious gangs of NY is at the center of a new mob murder mystery. As prosecutors tried and failed to bring him down, he came to be called the Teflon Don. A federal crackdown beginning in the 1980s later left many of its leaders in prison.

A witness said that his family members rushed outside after Cali was gunned down.
