Reputed Boss Of Gambino Crime Family Gunned Down In New York

NY media reported that 53-year-old Cali was shot multiple times outside his vehicle on Staten Island on Wednesday evening, local time, by an unidentified man who then fled the scene in a blue auto. He was shot in the chest at least six times on a tree-lined street in a quiet neighborhood a short walk from ball fields, a country club and a day camp.

No arrests have been made at this time.

Cali had served 16 months in prison following a 2008 extortion conviction.

The Gambino crime family has been in the spotlight for years because of its high-profile former leaders, the late John Gotti and his son John "Junior" Gotti. Gotti took over the crime organization; he died of cancer, in prison, in 2002.

According to local media in NY, he took the helm of the Gambino family in 2015, replacing Domenico Cefalu.

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

The Gambino family is one of five mafia families that have always been seen as running Italian-American organized crime syndicates in NY. He was serving a 139-year prison term.

Meanwhile, Cali's brother-in-law, Pietro (Tall Pete) Inzerillo, was a "well-documented solider" in the Gambino family, Probation wrote.

In 1985, Gambino "capo" John Gotti orchestrated the murder of Castellano to become the most publicized boss of the family.

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

Paul Castellano also owned a home there.

The Gambino family was once one of the most notorious crime syndicates in America and one of New York's five major crime families.

The Genovese, Gambino, Lucchese, Colombo and Bonanno mafia families are believed to have controlled organised crime in NY for decades. Sylvester Zottola, 71, reportedly of the Bonanno crime family, was gunned down at a McDonald's drive thru in the Bronx last October, according to WABC.

Four days before the meeting, "On The Inside" reported that Cali was the choice among his comrades, who respected Cali's strong low-key, old-world approach to doing business successfully without attracting fanfare or agita. At a 2008 bail, a prosecutor said Cali was seen "as a man of influence and power by organised crime members in Italy".
