  • The body of former mob boss John Gotti is carried from Papavero Funeral Home in the Queens borough of New York 15 June 2002

Police responded to a 911 call Wednesday night of an assault in front of the home in the NY borough of Staten Island.

On Wednesday, a little after 9 p.m., Cali - who went by Frank rather than Francesco- was shot multiple times in the torso outside of his Staten Island home, New York Police Department confirms to PEOPLE.

EMS responded to the scene and transported Cali to Staten Island University North where he was pronounced dead.

Witnesses told NY media outlets that they heard a number of shots before a blue pickup truck fled the area.

'The man was on the ground face-up.

The New York Post reported that police sources said the shooter hit Cali with multiple bullets and a 911 caller said they heard six or seven shots.

It's unclear whether Cali's murder was carried out by a rogue actor or approved by other members of the Italian American mafia in New York City. His head was by his SUV, and the truck was open'.

Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn had referred to Cali in court filings in recent years as the underboss of the Gambino organisation, related through marriage to the Inzerillo clan in the Sicilian mafia.

Cali is the first mob boss to be taken out since John Gotti Sr. orchestrated the assassination of then-Gambino boss Paul Castellano in 1985, according to The New York Post.

Cali reportedly took over the Gambino crime family in 2015, according to a profile in Gang Land News.

Otherwise known as "Franky Boy", Cali was considered the de facto godfather of the Gambino crime family, having served on its ruling panel for several years.

During his reign, Cali was the backbone of the heroin and Oxycontin trade, according to The New York Post.

Cali's only criminal conviction came from an extortion charge in 2008 for trying to shake down a trucker; he spent 16 months in prison.

NY media say it is the first targeted killing of a mob boss in the city since 1985.

An alleged mafia boss has been reportedly been shot and killed outside his home in NY.
