Top leader of Gambino crime family killed in New York

Top leader of Gambino crime family killed in New York

The reputed mob boss was pronounced dead at Staten Island University Hospital North, they said.

The body of former mob boss John Gotti is carried from Papavero Funeral Home in the Queens borough of NY 15 June 2002.

He was promoted to acting boss of the Gambino crime family in 2015 and was involved in trafficking heroin and Oxycontin, they alleged.

Cali is the first family boss to be murdered since the brazen 1985 power play that left Paul "Big Paulie" Castellano bleeding out in the street in front of Sparks Steakhouse and John Gotti on top of the Gambinos.

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

Cali's distraught family members rushed outside after the shooting.

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

Federal prosecutors had referred to Cali in court filings in recent years as the underboss of the Gambino organization.

New York City Police officers (NYPD) investigate the scene where, reported New York Mafia Gambino family crime boss, Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali, was killed outside his home in the Staten Island borough of New York City on March 14, 2019.

He said Rosneft was buying crude oil from Venezuela's state oil company PDVSA "in defiance of USA sanctions". Guaido tweeted about reports of looting in some cities, but details were hard to confirm.

A panicked family member called 911, telling a dispatcher Cali was deliberately run over before he was shot, sources said.

The Gambino Family was once among the most powerful criminal organizations in the US, but federal prosecutions in the 1980s and 1990s sent its top leaders to prison and diminished its reach.

Gotti then ran the Gambino family until he was convicted in 1992 of racketeering and five counts of murder.

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.

Last October, 71-year-old Sylvester Zottola of the Bonanno family was shot dead while waiting in his auto for an order from a Bronx McDonald's.

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.

Otherwise known as "Franky Boy", Cali was considered the de facto godfather of the Gambino crime family, having served on its ruling panel for several years.

"Papa! Papa!" one man yelled, a witness said.
