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

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

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

Shea said there has been a slight uptick in alleged mob-related violence in NY within the previous year.

The 53-year-old reportedly ascended to the top spot in the gang in 2015, taking over from Domenico Cefalu. The cases resulted in long prison terms for their bosses - Cali's swaggering 1980s-era predecessor John Gotti included - and encouraged their successors to keep a lower profile. They also ran over him with a truck in what the New York Daily News called "a gory hit".

Francesco Cali, head of the Gambino crime family, was shot to death Wednesday night in front of his home on Staten Island, the first mob boss in New York City to be violently killed in more than 30 years, according to local media.

The body of mafia crime boss Paul Castellano lies on a stretcher outside the Sparks Steak House in NY after he and his bodyguard were gunned down December 16, 1985. "So, if the theory of Gene Gotti stepping forward and being angry enough to take this kind of action, he couldn't take it without believing that the majority of the captains in his own family were supportive of it". "The word that I'm hearing is this: That there's old school tension and friction".

"Anybody who was making a move on boss of a crime family - besides a one-off renegade, you know, insane character - would have to have the backing of captains in that crime family".

Cali's body was found in an area of Staten Island that has been home to some of New York's most notorious mobsters and their families.

Last October, 71-year-old Sylvester Zottola, a reputed associate of the Bonanno organisation, was shot dead at a takeaway restaurant in the Bronx, New York. Persico was convicted in a 1986 case overseen by then-US Attorney Rudy Giuliani. Cali had just one conviction for extortion in 2008.

In that case, authorities intercepted conversations shedding light on his quiet underworld command.
