"Franky Boy", the reputed boss of New York's Gambino crime family was shot to death Wednesday night in front of his home in Staten Island, New York, by a gunman who may have staged a auto accident to lure him outside, dying a virtual unknown compared with his swaggering 1980s-era predecessor, John Gotti.

Anthony Comello is being held in a New Jersey jail and will formally charged with murder when he's extradited to the borough of Staten Island, where the killing happened, NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said at a news conference.

A man has been arrested in New Jersey in connection with the killing of Francesco Cali, a reputed boss of a NY crime family, a broadcast new report said Saturday. "Were others conspiring to do this crime?"

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.

The 53-year-old Cali, a native of Sicily, was shot to death by a gunman who may have crashed his truck into Cali's vehicle to lure him outside.

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.

Comello's fingerprints were found on Cali's license plate, sources said.

But sources said Cali - who helmed a family notorious for gambling, loan sharking, and its deadly trade in heroin and oxycodone - thought Comello was trouble, sources said.

Police said surveillance video captures the shooter, and the pick-up believed to be the getaway truck. He was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital North, where he was pronounced dead.

Cali's only mob-related criminal conviction came a decade ago, when he pleaded guilty in an extortion scheme involving a failed attempt to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island.

Cali was sentenced to 16 months in prison and was released in 2009.

Cali, a native of the Italian island Sicily, served in the organization's ruling panel for years before replacing Domenico Cefalu in 2015.
