Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali was found with multiple gunshot wounds at his red-brick colonial-style house on Staten Island on Wednesday night and was pronounced dead at a hospital. "Franky Boy", the reputed boss of New York's Gambino crime family was shot to death Wednesday night in front of his home in Staten Island, New York, by a gunman who may have staged a auto accident to lure him outside, dying a virtual unknown compared with his swaggering 1980s-era predecessor, John Gotti.
A 24-year-old man has been taken into custody in connection with the shooting death of reputed New York crime boss Francesco "Frank" Cali, the New York Police Department said Saturday. "We are at the beginning stages of this investigation", Shea said. "Was the person paid to do it?"
Surveillance video of the killing showed a man, allegedly Mr Comello, crash his vehicle into Mr Cali's parked SUV, drawing Mr Cali outside in what might have been a ploy to lure him out of the house, Mr Shea said.
Mr Shea said the reputed mob boss was shot ten times.
When he was apprehended, the suspect was in the vicinity of a blue pick-up truck, said police sources. Comello's truck was issued a parking summons in Staten Island on the day of Cali's murder, Shea said.

But sources said Cali - who helmed a family notorious for gambling, loan sharking, and its deadly trade in heroin and oxycodone - thought Comello was trouble, sources said.
Cali was an associate in the Gambino family, according to court documents, when he was indicted in 2008 with more than two dozen other Gambino members for a range of alleged crimes. News accounts since 2015 said he had ascended to the top spot.
Later that year, he pleaded guilty to extortion conspiracy related to the planned construction of a NASCAR speedway on Staten Island - a plan that eventually was scrapped. He was sentenced to 16 months in federal prison and was released in 2009.
The killing marked the first murder of a sitting mob boss in NY since the December 1985 hit on Gambino boss Paul "Big Paul" Castellano, who lived in the same neighborhood where Cali was shot.
