Major Reputed Mafia Boss Shot To Death Outside His Home

Officers rushed to his residence at around 9:17 p.m. local time after a report of an assault was called in, NBC News reported, citing the New York City Police Department.

In this file handout photo released on February 7, 2008 by Italian Police shows Frank Cali, presumed Mafia member suspected of drug trafficking in Sicily and arrested in the operation codenamed "Old Bridge on February 7, 2008".

Cali, who was known throughout his life as "Franky Boy", is the nephew-in-law of Sicilian mobster John Gambino and had close ties to the Sicilian Mafia family led by Salvatore Inzerillo.

But Gravano would eventually testify against Gotti, leading to Gotti's 1992 conviction in five murders - one of several major convictions that thinned the Mafia ranks in the 1980s and '90s. Gotti died while in prison in 2002 of throat cancer and Gambino died in 1976.

The killing of Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali in New York City this week has shed light on past mob-related in hits in America.

After exiting a limousine outside the restaurant, Castellano and his underboss, Thomas Bilotti, were approached by three men in trench coats who shot them each about six times, The New York Times reported at the time.

Paul Castellano, the Gambino family head at that time, was shot in the street on Manhattan's East Side. However, he kept a relatively low profile for the most part.

Cali, the judge wrote, had subjected the victim "to an implied threat of violence" which carried great weight due to Cali's "status in the organized crime family which carries a reputation for violence".

He was reputed to be the boss of the Gambino crime family.

Cali is the first mob boss to be murdered in NY since Gotti ordered the infamous hit on Gambino boss Paul Castellano, having him gunned down in front of Sparks Steak House in Manhattan in December 1985. 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.
