The reputed head of New York's Gambino crime family, Frank Cali, has been killed outside his home, the city's police have told United States media. He was pronounced dead at the hospital, police said.

A witness told The New York Daily News: 'There were like six shots, and then there were three more.

A police source told DailyMail.com: 'Cali was home having dinner with his family when this truck pulled up.

In January 1997, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent reportedly notified Italian police of Cali's distinctive standing as a member of crime families on both sides of the ocean, after he was "combined" into the Gambino family. "The man was on the ground face-up".

One man collapsed in front of the home crying: 'Papa!

The Gambino family was once one of the most notorious crime syndicates in America and one of New York's five major crime families. Papa!' as a woman shouted into her phone: 'Why doesn't the ambulance come?

Detectives stand over the body of reputed mob boss Paul Castellano, after his execution outside of Sparks Steakhouse on 46th St.in December 1985.

The last mob boss to be killed was Paul Castellano, also the leader of the Gambino crime family at the time, who was murdered outside Sparks Steakhouse in Midtown Manhattan in 1985.

After reportedly taking the reins in 2015, Cali was described by mafia watchers as the opposite of Gotti because "no-one ever sees him", the New York Post reported.

Authorities have claimed the 53-year-old Cali is the boss of the Gambino crime family, previously headed by the infamous John Gotti.

Charges against members of Mafia operations, including Gambino family operatives, have included murder, loan sharking, gambling and illegal drug distribution, Reuters has reported.

Cali himself was jailed for 16 months for his connection to an extortion scheme surrounding an attempt to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island. John Gotti and his turncoat underboss, Sammy "Bull" Gravano watched the action from Third Avenue.
