Crime scene investigators load a auto that appears to have been checked for fingerprints onto a flatbed truck in the Staten Island borough of New York, Thursday, March 14, 2019.

The mafia didn't kill Gambino boss Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali - a twentysomething Staten Island hothead with a personal beef did, police and sources said Saturday.

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.

Cali, 53, was fatally shot outside his Staten Island home Wednesday night. "We are at the beginning stages of this investigation", Shea said. "Were others conspiring to do this crime?" The suspect shot Cali as many as 10 times, Shea said.

Shea said police have recovered the truck but have not recovered the gun used in the murder. The shooting outside Cali's home, the source said, suggests the killing was meant to send an ominous message. For one, a 24-year-old man from Brick, New Jersey has already been arrested in connection with the murder.

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. He was sentenced to 16 months in federal prison and was released in 2009. Comello's truck was issued a parking summons in Staten Island on the day of Cali's murder, Shea said.

Cali was the first NY crime family boss shot since 1985, when Paul Castellano, who owned a mansion on Todt Hill, was executed as he arrived at Sparks Steakhouse in Manhattan.
