According to police, witnesses said that they had heard about 6-7 shots, but it is not known how many bullets hit the gangster.

Residents of the quiet suburb was pretty scared.
«I’ve seen the movies about the mafia, but in our area nothing like this has happened before,» said 39-year-old Prashant Ranyal living a few blocks from the crime scene.

«You never know who lives next door,» added The Post another local resident by the name of Salvatore.
Investigators, including the FBI, are now trying to find out whether the murder is «sanctioned» by the five new York mafia «families» — or the shooter acted alone and for personal reasons.

Cali, a native of Sicily, became the de facto godfather of the Gambino in 2015. According to sources in the police, in September last year, he took the «family» a new generation of Italian gangsters and focused on trafficking in heroin and oxycontin. However, for their «career» Cali once charged with a crime. In 2008, he served 16 months for racketeering.

Note that the killing near the house of the mafia is considered the unofficial disrespectful.
