Reputed Gambino Crime Boss Frank Cali Shot Dead In Front Of Staten Island Home Gambino crime family boss Frank Cali is shot, killed and run over outside Staten Island home

Police responding to a 911 call about an assault in progress just after 9.15pm arrived to find 53-year-old Cali with six gunshot wounds to the torso.

Detectives stand over the body of reputed mob boss Paul Castellano, after his execution outside of Sparks Steakhouse on 46th St.in December 1985.

Cali was ultimately caught up in a massive mob bust almost a decade later.

The Gambino crime family is one of New York's notorious "Five Families" and traces its origins to the early 20th century.

No arrests have been made and an investigation is ongoing as police search for a blue pickup truck that fled the gruesome scene after it is believed to have run Cali over.

The influence of the Gambinos waned in the 1990s after a number of members turned government informers and several leaders were imprisoned.

Cali pleaded guilty in Brooklyn federal court in 2008 to extortion conspiracy, stemming from his part in a scheme to get money from a trucker working at the former proposed NASCAR site in Bloomfield.

Cali had been considered a unifying figure in the crime family, in the years after John Gotti was convicted and sent to prison by cooperating mob witnesses.

An alleged mafia boss has been reportedly been shot and killed outside his home in NY.

It was a marked change from the Gotti era, which brought with its unnecessary attention and exposure.

He also had close ties through marriage to the Inzerillo family in Palermo, Sicily, having married Rosaria Inzerillo, a sister of Pietro Inzerillo and a relative of Gambino associate Frank Inzerillo.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, who at the time was the United States Attorney for the Southern District of NY, condemned the killings and vowed to find those responsible.

According to local media, Cali ascended through the ranks, becoming a powerful capo of organised crime before turning 40 - less than 10 years after becoming an inducted member.

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