Level 57 Taco Wizard
New York police are hunting the hitman who pumped at least six bullets into Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali before making sure the 53-year-old Gambino mob boss was dead by running over him with a blue pickup truck as the assassin fled, officials and witnesses said.
No name or description of the killer was provided by police and authorities have yet to say if Cali's death is the result of an intra-mafia squabble or if the crime family leader was whacked by a rogue gunman.
Cali was shot several times outside his house in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island around 9:20 p.m., the New York Post reported. His family sat helplessly inside the home as Cali was murdered. He was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital North and pronounced dead.
But the ambush outside Cali's outer borough home was "disrespectful," one source told the New York Post.
A neighbor of Cali's told the New York Times that he heard a burst of gunshots just after 9 p.m.
“I just heard the pow-pow-pow-pow-pow,” said the 58-year-old, who identified himself to the paper as Salvatore.
