Gambino crime boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali was gunned down outside his Staten Island home bringing to mind some of the most famous mob hits of yesteryear.
The gunmen pulled up in a blue pickup truck outside Cali’s home at about 9:20 p.m. on Wednesday evening and opened fire as the victim stood outside his Todt Hill home, police reported.
A caller to 911 said that as many as seven shots were heard, but police have not reported how many times Cali was hit.
He “was a real quiet old-school boss,” one police source told the paper.
The dead crime boss had only one criminal conviction which he incurred in 2008 when he was convicted of shaking down a trucker.
