Frank Cali, Reputed Boss of Gambino Family, Shot Dead in NY

Reputed Boss Of Gambino Crime Family Gunned Down In New York Alleged Gambino Crime Family Boss Frank Cali Shot Dead Outside Home

The 53-year-old Gambino crime family boss was shot several times in front of his Staten Island mansion around 9:20 p.m.

By early Thursday on Staten Island, the police had strung yellow tape across the street leading to Cali's home, a large red-brick, two-story colonial style house whose front door stood open.

Witnesses to the crime said the killers reportedly ran over Cali's body with a blue pickup truck after he was shot to make sure he was dead, according to the police, as The Daily Beast reported.

He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The motive for the attack was under investigation, police said.

Cali's only criminal conviction came from an extortion charge in 2008 for trying to shake down a trucker; he spent 16 months in prison.

United States media reported that his death marked the first murder of a NY mob boss in 34 years, since the death of Paul Castellano - another Gambino family boss - by order of John Gotti.

Following Castellano's murder, which saw the boss dramatically gunned down outside a Manhattan steakhouse after stepping out of a black limo, Gotti took over as the Gambino family don. The cases resulted in long prison terms for their bosses - Cali's swaggering 1980s-era predecessor John Gotti included - and encouraged their successors to keep a lower profile.

Suspected Gambino crime boss Frank Cali was fatally shot outside his home in NY on Wednesday.

The Genovese, Gambino, Lucchese, Colombo and Bonanno mafia families are believed to have controlled organised crime in NY for decades.

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. Now, there is concern that this could be the start of a mob war in New York City.

Staten Island's affluent Todt Hill neighbourhood is renowned for its crime connections.

"We thought those days were over", the city's mayor Bill de Blasio told journalists.

However, he says the recent murder "is turning all of those years on its head".
