NY media say it is the first targeted killing of a mob boss in the city since 1985. The cases resulted in long prison terms for their bosses - Gotti included - and encouraged their successors to keep a lower profile.
Cali is the first mob boss to be murdered in NY since Gotti ordered the infamous hit on Gambino boss Paul Castellano, having him gunned down in front of Sparks Steak House in Manhattan in December 1985.
His murder is the first of a NY mob boss since Paul Castellano was famously assassinated at Sparks Steakhouse in 1985. The 85-year-old was serving a 100-year federal prison sentence after his conviction on racketeering and murder charges in the famous mid-'80s "Commission trial".
