The purported head of the Gambino crime family, also known as "Franky Boy", was shot repeatedly outside his home in the NY borough of Staten Island late Wednesday.

New York City police say a suspect was arrested in New Jersey in the shooting death of the reputed Gambino crime family boss.

Cali, 53, was shot outside his home in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island on Wednesday night, authorities said.

The NYPD has "an arrest warrant in hand from the Richmond County DA's office", Shea said during the news conference, adding that the suspect's arrest will happen upon coordination with prosecutors in New Jersey. "Was the person paid to do it?" "The investigation will turn to were other parties involved in this, gathering future and additional evidence and working on the motive for this particular crime".

Shea says Cali emerged from his home around 9:15 p.m. after the suspect backed his pickup truck into Cali's Cadillac SUV.

Surveillance video of the killing showed a man, allegedly Mr Comello, crash his vehicle into Mr Cali's parked SUV, drawing Mr Cali outside in what might have been a ploy to lure him out of the house, Mr Shea said.

Shea said police have recovered the truck but have not recovered the gun used in the murder.

While Shea said investigators have not ruled anything out, even probing whether Comello was hired to kill Cali, several sources said this didn't seem to be a traditional organized crime hit, believing it was something more personal.

But NBC New York cited unnamed law enforcement sources who said that the death does not appear to be mob related and and who described the suspect as a conspiracy theorist. News accounts since 2015 said he had ascended to the top spot.

Cali was released after 16 months in federal prison in April 2009 for an extortion scheme.

The last crime family boss to be shot in New York City was Paul Castellano.
