A man believed to be a ranking member in the notorious Gambino crime family was shot to death outside his home on Staten Island Wednesday night, police and a law enforcement official close to the investigation said.
Police responding to a 911 call around 9:20 p.m. found Francesco Cali, 53, shot outside his home on Hilltop Terrace in Todt Hill. The 911 caller had initially reported a man had been run over by a vehicle on purpose and that he was trapped; the caller then said he had also been shot multiple times. Cops found Cali with gunshot wounds to the torso; he was pronounced dead at a hospital.
A suspect fled the scene in a blue pickup truck, the NYPD said. Authorities canvassed the scene overnight, roping off the entire front yard as evidence markers littered the pavement near an SUV parked out front.
Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn had referred to Cali in court filings in recent years as the underboss of the Gambino organization, related through marriage to the Inzerillo clan in the Sicilian Mafia.

Multiple press accounts since 2015 said Cali had ascended to the top spot in the gang, although he never faced a criminal charge saying so.
His only mob-related criminal conviction came a decade ago, when Cali pleaded guilty in an extortion conspiracy involving a failed attempt to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island. He was sentenced to 16 months in federal prison and was released in 2009.
The last crime family boss to be shot in New York City was Paul Castellano. The Gambino crime boss was assassinated outside Sparks Steakhouse in Manhattan in 1985. The family was once among the most powerful criminal organizations in the U.S., but federal prosecutions in the 1980s and 1990s sent its top leaders to prison and diminished its reach.

So, planned hit and declaration of war, or just some bitter asshole making a name for himself?

Too brazen to be someone just making a name for himself. This is a message to someone.

Think there's any connection with Carmine Persico passing away just last week? Also, there was a hit in The Bronx fairly recently -- they got him going through McDonald's drive thru.

Goddamn it, you beat me to it.
Yeah, it seems like some shit is going down in New York.

Also, imagine getting gunned down at a McDonald's drive thru while waiting for a coffee.

Who the fuck in New York watches NASCAR?
It was a big sort-of scandal at the time. The powers that be were obsessed with getting a NASCAR track on SI, despite the horrific lack of access or parking for a weekly gathering of 100,000 screaming rednecks. The revelation that the whole failed endeavor was mobbed up was beyond unsurprising.

I look forward to a new wave of Organized Gangster wars. It has been quite a few years since the last big one.

Looks like true crime is back on the menu boys.
There is a fairly solid working theory that Gene Gotti (John's brother) may be making a play to take back the family after being released from prison in October. Maybe he was waiting for Persicone to croak before making a move, maybe it's a coincidence. But as the Gambinos had been running pretty smoothly up to this point (Cali was the polar opposite of Gotti, keeping his head down and out of the papers almost entirely), Gene may come down with a severe case of lead poisoning in the near future. Keep your popcorn ready!

Got some fresh detail for you all.

Hitman backs his truck into Cali's Cadillac SUV.

This lures Cali out.

Cali walks over to the scene of the "accident."

The Crime Boss mimes to the hitman that he could have a gun in his back pocket.

Hitman hands Cali the license plate to Cali's own SUV. It had come off in the ramming.

Cali takes the plate and turns his back to the hitman to put the license plate in the back of his SUV.

Hitman takes that opportunity to shoot Cali.

Cali goes down.

Hitman moves over him, and fires at least one more time.

Hitman then calmly moves back to his truck and drives away.

Michael Cohen finally snapped after too many days spent not associating with known felons.

The Jews never forgave the Italians for having The Godfather, Goodfellas, and The Sopranos. Even the eggplants have The Wire. How's a poor tribesman 'sposed to make due with Casino? Robert de Niro isn't even Jewish!
