Gambino crime family boss Frank (Franky Boy) Cali was gunned down and run over Wednesday night in a gory hit in front of his Staten Island home, police sources said.

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

Police were searching for the pickup truck that raced from the grisly scene, sources said.

A man answering his wife’s cell phone hung up on a reporter Wednesday night.

NYPD investigate the scene where Frank (Franky Boy) Cali was shot in front of 25 Hilltop Terrace in the Todt Hill Section of Staten Island Wednesday night.

Cali who served on the family's ruling panel for several years, was elevated to acting boss in 2015, replacing then 68-year-old Domenico Cefalu.

A native of Sicily, Cali has deep mob ties, and his wife is the niece of Gambino capo John Gambino. His brother Joseph and brother-in-law Peter Inzerillo are reputed Gambino soldiers.

He rose quickly through the ranks of organized crime, becoming a powerful capo before the age of 40, less than a decade after he became an inducted member, according to court papers.

Federal authorities tried to put a stop to Cali’s rise to power in the late 2000s, after he completed a 16-month sentence for an extortion scheme connected to a failed bid to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island.

I dont weep for gangsters.  The best thing I can say is the man who did it probably deserves the same treatment.

Yep, under the Goethals Bridge. I worked on that project for 2 years and left shortly before all the busts. The mob is most certainly still around.

Well you can say this about him, he was certainly tough.  Shot six times, run over and died at the hospital.  Yeesh.

I don't understand how the mob is able to operate in today's world where you have blanket surveillance of pretty much everything.
