Gambino crime boss fatally shot at Staten Island home
 
Francesco “Frank” Cali, reputed boss of the Gambino organized crime family, was fatally shot on Wednesday night at his Staten Island home.

The 53-year-old Cali, who had ties to the Inzerillo Mafia family in Palermo, Sicily, was taken to Staten Island University North Hospital in critical condition, sources said. He was shot several times.

No arrests have been made.

The FDNY responded at 9:18 p.m. to a home in the upscale Todt Hill section of Staten Island. The house is listed under the name of Rosaria Inzerillo.

Cali had been considered a unifying figure in the crime family, in the years after John Gotti was convicted and sent to prison by cooperating mob witnesses. Unlike the well-dressed Dapper Don of the late 80s and early 90s, Cali had kept a low profile.

Cali was the first New York crime family boss shot since 1985, when Paul Castellano, who owned a mansion on Todt Hill, was executed as he arrived at Sparks Steakhouse in Manhattan. John Gotti and his turncoat underboss, Sammy “Bull” Gravano watched the action from Third Avenue.

The man charged with killing the reputed boss of the Gambino crime family wrote pro-Donald Trump slogans on his hand and flashed them to journalists before a court hearing Monday.


Anthony Comello, 24, was arrested Saturday in New Jersey in the death of Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali last week in front of his Staten Island home.

While waiting for a court hearing to begin in Toms River, New Jersey, in which he agreed to be extradited to New York, Comello held up his left hand.

On it were scrawled pro-Trump slogans including "MAGA Forever," an abbreviation of Trump's campaign slogan "Make America Great Again." It also read "United We Stand MAGA" and "Patriots In Charge." In the center of his palm he had drawn a large circle. It was not immediately clear why he had done so.

Comello's lawyer, Brian Neary, would not discuss the writing on his client's hand, nor would he say whether Comello maintains his innocence. Asked by reporters after the hearing what was on Comello's hand, Neary replied, "Handcuffs."

He referred all other questions to Comello's Manhattan lawyer, Robert Gottlieb, who did not respond to two messages seeking comment Monday.

Comello sat with a slight smile in the jury box of the courtroom Monday afternoon as dozens of reporters and photographers filed into the room. When they were in place, Comello held up his left hand to display the writings as the click and whirr of camera lenses filled the room with sound.

During the hearing, Comello did not speak other than to say, "Yes, sir" to the judge to respond to several procedural questions.

I’m betting he gets killed before he even goes to trial
