Gambino crime kingpin Frank Cali shot dead in New York

Gambino crime kingpin Frank Cali shot dead in New York”

Police and FDNY units responded to Hilltop Terrace for a report of shots fired at 9:18 p.m., according to an FDNY and NYPD spokesman.

Cali was rushed to Staten Island University North Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

No description of a suspect is now available, and no arrests have been made, according to an NYPD spokesman.

In 2008, Cali was arrested and charged with federal racketeering as part of Operation Old Bridge - a code name for the February 7 arrests in Italy and the US that targeted the Gambino crime family.

Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali is said to have taken over the running of the organisation from Domenico Cefalu in 2015.

The New York Times notes that Cali's murder came the same day Joseph Cammarano, thought to be the acting boss of the Bonanno crime family, was acquitted at trial.

The appointment allowed Cali to join the ranks of former leaders like John Gotti and Carlo Gambino.

The body of mafia crime boss Paul Castellano lies on a stretcher outside the Sparks Steak House in New York after he and his bodyguard were gunned down Dec. 16 1985

He served a 16-month sentence.

An alleged mafia boss has been reportedly been shot and killed outside his home in NY.

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'.

It was a marked change from the Gotti era, which brought with its unnecessary attention and exposure. Cali was married to Rosaria Inzerillo.

Two years later, reputed Gambino soldier Frank Fappiano of Tottenville was nabbed by the feds, then gave up Cali's name as a "wiseguy", an Italian media outlet reported at the time.

In January 1997, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent reportedly notified Italian police of Cali's distinctive standing as a member of crime families on both sides of the ocean, after he was "combined" into the Gambino family.
