Police arrest suspect in Staten Island mob murder case

Gambino

The report said the man is from Staten Island, where the fatal shooting of Cali occurred Wednesday in front of his home in the Hilltop Terrace section of the borough. He is listed as single and a high school graduate.

Cali, 53, was killed Wednesday night, shot outside his NY home.

Comello will be extradited from New Jersey to NY to face charges, Shea said.

Surveillance video of the killing showed a man, allegedly Comello, crash his vehicle into Cali's parked SUV, drawing Cali outside in what might have been a ploy to lure him out of the house, Shea said. No other details about the arrest were immediately available Saturday afternoon.

Shea said the motive for the killing is unknown.

New Jersey 101.5 did not know Saturday whether Commello had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Leftwing Activists Accuse Chelsea Clinton of Causing the New Zealand Shooting
However, a student at the event told Clinton "her rhetoric" had in fact contributed to help the attacks in New Zealand. The student apparently was referring to Clinton's recent condemnation of anti-Semitic statements by Rep.

He is the first reputed mob boss murdered in New York City in 30 years.

Several sources, both locally and in NY, confirmed the arrest but none could divulge the suspect's name or where, exactly, he was taken into custody. Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali was found with multiple gunshot wounds at his red-brick colonial-style house on Staten Island on Wednesday night and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

A panicked family member called 911, telling a dispatcher Cali was run over before he was shot, though investigators were still looking into whether the gunman mowed the mobster down, sources said.

Video shows the suspect pulling a 9 mm handgun and opening fire on Cali about a minute after they started talking.

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.
