Reputed Gambino mob boss killed outside home

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NYPD CHIEF OF DETECTIVES DERMOT SHEA SAYING: "This is a very early stage of this investigation and we've got work to do." Police on Thursday are hunting for suspects in the brazen murder of a reputed mob boss outside his home in Staten Island, New York.

Police say the victim was Francesco Cali - the reputed head of the New York Mafia's Gambino family.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NYPD CHIEF OF DETECTIVES DERMOT SHEA SAYING: "He exits his residence, has a conversation with an individual, when approximately 12 shots are fired.

With at least 6 striking the victim, causing his demise." Cali - also known as Franky Boy - was gunned down late Wednesday, according to police, and was reportedly also run over by a blue pickup truck.

The 53-year-old was then rushed to a Staten Island Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

At the crime scene Thursday, police were seen taking away a silver SUV and authorities said police are working to determine whether a car accident was staged to lure Cali outside." (SOUNDBITE) (English) NYPD CHIEF OF DETECTIVES DERMOT SHEA SAYING: "We know there was a vehicle accident in front of the residence, we believe the victims' car was struck and that was part of the investigation." According to the New York Post, Cali is the first mafia boss killed since John Gotti ordered the murder of Paul Castellano, who was gunned down outside Sparks Steakhouse in Manhattan in 1985.

Gotti was convicted of racketeering and Castellano's murder in 1992.

The Gambino crime operation is one of the five historic Italian-American Mafia families in New York City.
