Alleged New York mob boss shot and killed on Staten Island

Reputed Gambino Crime Boss Frank Cali Shot Dead In Front Of Staten Island Home

The murder of reputed Gambino crime family boss Frank Cali on Wednesday recalled New York City's last major mob hit almost 35 years ago: the assassination of Paul Castellano outside a Manhattan steak house on a December afternoon in 1985.

Franceso "Frank" Cali was taken to Staten Island University Hospital North and pronounced dead, the New York Post reported.

The Gambino operation is said to be one of the five historic Italian-US mafia families in NY.

They said distraught family members ran outside after the shots were fired. His head was by his SUV, and the truck was open'.

Authorities have claimed the 53-year-old Cali is the boss of the Gambino crime family, previously headed by the infamous John Gotti.

The black boxes from the crash have been recovered and an airline spokesman said they would be sent to Germany for analysis. The FAA has refused to ground the Boeing 737 Max 8, leaving the USA in an increasingly small minority, the BBC reports.

John Gotti, who organised the hit, then took power at the helm of the Gambino family.

Cali pleaded guilty in Brooklyn federal court in 2008 to extortion conspiracy, stemming from his part in a scheme to get money from a trucker working at the former proposed NASCAR site in Bloomfield.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, who at the time was the United States Attorney for the Southern District of NY, condemned the killings and vowed to find those responsible.

The Gambinos" rise to become one of the most powerful mafia families in America started in 1957, when the family's namesake, Carlos Gambino - an Italian immigrant - orchestrated the murder of Albert Anastasia, who had organized a collection of Italian gangs into what now would be considered a "crime family'. The Daily Beast noted, "Cali's home is a two-minute drive from where one of his predecessors, late Gambino boss Paul Castellano, lived in an ostentatious mansion dubbed the White House until he was executed outside Sparks Steak House in Manhattan in 1985".

Gotti's reign came to an end when his underboss, Sammy "The Bull" Gravano agreed to testify against him and other members of the family in a 1992 RICO trial.
