Gambino crime family boss Frank Cali was fatally shot in front of his Staten Island home in New York on Wednesday night.

The 53-year-old was shot six times on the chest and run over by a pickup truck. He was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital in critical condition where he succumbed to injuries. Police were looking for the pickup truck and witnesses. No arrests were made, the New York Post reported.

Speaking to the New York Daily News, a witness said, “There were like six shots, and then there were three more. The man was on the ground face-up. His head was by his SUV, and the truck was open.” 

Post the imprisonment of John Gotti, the former head of the Gambino crime family, Cali managed to keep the family united, however, kept it very low profile. He also was known to have ties to the Inzerillo Mafia family in Palermo, Italy. He replaced Domenico Cefalu to become the boss of the crime family in 2015.

Cali, also known as Franky Boy, was born Francesco Paolo Augusto Calì. He was raised in New York by his parents who were natives of Italy. Cali was also related to Bonanno mobsters Vito Bonventre and Giovanni Bonventre. His wife is the niece of Gambino mobster John Gambino.

He became a powerful capo, less than a decade after he was admitted to the family. Cali has done just one criminal conviction which was an extortion charge in 2008 for which he was sentenced to 16 months in prison.

This is a developing story.
