Cali was not only shot several times, his killers even ran over him with their vehicle, according to the New York Post.
Cali, who was known throughout his life as "Franky Boy", is the nephew-in-law of Sicilian mobster John Gambino and had close ties to the Sicilian Mafia family led by Salvatore Inzerillo.
The gunmen pulled up in a blue pickup truck outside Cali's home at about 9:20 p.m. on Wednesday evening and opened fire as the victim stood outside his Todt Hill home, police reported.
Experts agree that Francesco Cali was the individual responsible for consolidating the Gambino family after John Gotti was sent to prison on murder and racketeering in 1992, leaving the mob outfit in a power vacuum so conspicuous, even the casual observer could sense their grip on the criminal underworld was on the fritz.

In October, reputed Bonanno associate Sylvester Zottola was fatally shot while waiting for a cup of coffee at a McDonald's drive-thru in the Bronx. One man kneeled down next to Cali's body and sobbed, "Papa!"
Four days before the meeting, "On The Inside" reported that Cali was the choice among his comrades, who respected Cali's strong low-key, old-world approach to doing business successfully without attracting fanfare or agita.
