Mafia boss 'Franky Boy' killed in drive-by shooting

Mafia boss 'Franky Boy' killed in drive-by shooting

The New York Daily News reported in 2015 that cali had been made acting boss of the Gambino crime family: "Frank Cali, 49, of Staten Island, who has served on the family's ruling panel for several years, has been elevated to acting boss, replacing 68-year-old Domenico Cefalu, the website Ganglandnews.com reported Thursday".

This is the first hit on a Gambino boss since Paul Castellano was gunned down in 1985 in front of Sparks Steak House.

The 53-year-old with deep ties to Sicilian organized crime factions - thought to have been leading the Gambinos since 2015, wielding influence both stateside and in Italy - suffered "multiple gunshot wounds to the torso" in the attack on Wednesday evening, police said.

Medics arrived at the scene and transported Cali to Staten Island University North, where he was pronounced dead.

"There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing", a statement said. Cali had just one conviction for extortion in 2008.

Following Castellano's murder, Gotti headed the Gambino family until his incarceration for conspiracy and murder in 1992. He was sentenced to life in prison and died of cancer in 2002.

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

After all, it had been 34 years since a Mafia don like him had been "whacked" on the streets of NY.

Cali reportedly became the Gambino godfather in 2015 and is said to have brought a new crop of Italians to NY straight from Sicily.

Affluent Todt Hill is renowned for its crime connections.

The day after Castellano's December 1985 murder, The New York Times called the Mob boss' death "highly stylized", but Giuliani dismissed such morbid romanticism. "The word that I'm hearing is this: That there's old school tension and friction". In October, reputed Bonanno associate Sylvester Zottola was fatally shot while waiting for a cup of coffee at a McDonald's drive-thru in the Bronx. As prosecutors tried and failed to bring him down, he came to be called the Teflon Don.
