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

New York City Police officer is seen at 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 U.S

Police are now investigating the matter and have yet to arrest anyone in connection.

Once Cali was on the ground, the driver stood over him, firing multiple times - as if to make sure the victim was dead - before calmly walking back to his pickup truck and driving away, the Daily Beast reported. He said the shots were all the same volume, as if fired from the same gun.

Det Shea said Cali emerged from his home around 9:15pm after the suspect backed his pickup truck into his Cadillac SUV.

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, U.S., March 14, 2019.

Cali was elevated to acting boss of the Gambino crime family in 2015.

Following Castellano's murder, Gotti headed the Gambino family until his incarceration for conspiracy and murder in 1992.

A reputed NY crime boss was shot and killed outside a home Wednesday night. After Gotti went to prison, Cali eventually took over the organization.

The murder reminded Mob fans of the last NY "hit" on a Mafia boss, almost 40 years ago.

NY media say it is the first targeted killing of a mob boss in the city since 1985.

The Gambino crime family is one of what is widely referred to as "The Five Families" of Italian organized crime operations in New York City and other parts of the United States.

"We thought those days were over", the city's mayor Bill de Blasio told journalists.

Gambino headed the organization until 1976, when he handed power over to his brother-in-law Paul Castellano.

Cali was sentenced to 16 months in prison and was released in 2009.

One of the most notorious gangs of NY is at the center of a new mob murder mystery.

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.

A week ago, Persico died after serving 33 years in prison.

A witness said that his family members rushed outside after Cali was gunned down.
