Reputed Gambino crime boss shot to death in New York City

Reputed Gambino crime boss shot to death in New York City

He was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital North, where he was declared dead. Gotti died while in prison in 2002 of throat cancer and Gambino died in 1976.

According to The Daily Beast, Cali was made acting boss in 2015 after becoming a "made member" of the Gambino family in the late 1990's.

According to the New York Daily News, a family member of Cali's called 911, telling a dispatcher that the gunman's getaway vehicle ran him over.

According to reports, Cali's death marks the highest ranking member of a NY crime family to be murdered in decades.

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

The shooting outside Cali's home, the source said, suggests the killing was meant to send an ominous message.

Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un begin talks with one-on-one meeting
Trump critics said he squandered critical USA leverage before the North had taken any concrete steps toward denuclearization. After holding a working lunch, Kim and Trump plan to sign a joint statement around 2 p.m., according to the White House.

Meanwhile, on March 13, two heads of the Bonanno family, Joseph Cammarano Jr. and John Zancocchio, were acquitted in court on conspiracy and racketeering charges, the New York Times reported.

"Franky Boy" Cali, 53, was shot several times and run over by a blue pickup truck in the island's Todt Hill section around 9:15 p.m., according to multiple reports.

Last week, Carmine Persico, the 85-year-old former boss of the Colombo organisation, died after serving 33 years of a 139-year prison sentence.

Last October, Sylvester Zottola, 71, reportedly of the Bonanno crime family, was gunned down at a McDonald's drive-thru in the Bronx.

It is believed he only had one criminal conviction, for conspiring to extort money in 2008 for which he served 16 months in prison. One man kneeled down next to Cali's body and sobbed, "Papa!"

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

In addition, Probation requested that Cali be forbidden from contacting or associating with those affiliated with any organized crime groups, including the Camorra, 'Ndrangheta, and Sacra Corona Unita factions of the Sicilian Mafia.
