Franky Cali killing brings back fears of mob violence in NY

Francesco Cali 53 was shot multiple times in front of his home on Hilltop Terrace on Wednesday

Gambino crime family boss Frank (Franky Boy) Cali was gunned down Wednesday night in a gory hit in front of his Staten Island home, police sources said. No other details about the arrest were immediately available Saturday afternoon.

The Feds are upholding surveillance footage showing Camello picking up the fallen license plate of Cali's Cadillac Escalade, handing it over, retreating a few steps, then opening fire on the reputed crime boss.

Cali, 53, was shot six times in the chest by a gunman in a blue pickup truck on Hilltop Terrace near Four Corners Road in Todt Hill about 9:15 p.m. Medics took him to Staten Island University Hospital, where he died.

Shea said Comello was arrested in New Jersey and will be charged with murder in Cali's death.

Asked about Comello's background, Shea said he "crossed paths in some limited circumstances with the NYPD" including getting a parking ticket on Staten Island the day Cali was killed.

New Jersey 101.5 did not know Saturday whether Commello had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
