Prosecutors: Boss of Gambino mob gunned down

New York City police on Thursday were investigating the bold, fatal shooting of alleged Gambino crime boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali outside his Staten Island home.

Officers responding to a 911 call Wednesday night found Cali, 53, who was shot multiple times, police said in a statement. Emergency medical team rushed him to Staten Island University Hospital North, where Cali was pronounced dead.

“There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing,” police said in a terse statement.

Federal prosecutors have described Cali as a top leader of New York’s notorious Gambino crime family. His murder marked the most notable killing of a Gambino boss since 1985, when Paul Castellano was shot dead in front of the Sparks Steak House in Manhattan. Cali lived less than a half-mile away from Castellano’s Staten Island mansion.

  1. The last crime boss to be gunned down in New York City was 1985? Well then I’d say them crime bosses are doing ok, I would have expected something much more recent.

  2. From WikiPedia… Update:
    'Cali died on March 13, 2019, at the age of 53 at Staten Island University Hospital after being taken there following a violent incident in front of his home. Reports at the time indicated Cali was shot six times in the chest by an unknown assailant, and run over by a blue pickup truck on Hilltop Terrace near Four Corners Road in Todt Hill about 9:15 p.m. Cali's murder occurred mere hours after reputed acting boss of the Bonanno crime family Joseph Cammarano Jr. and his consigliere John Zancocchio were acquitted of racketeering and conspiracy to commit extortion charges.' – Wiki
