The NYPD on Saturday announced that a suspect had been taken into custody and is expected to be hit with murder charges in the slaying of Francesco Cali, the reputed boss of the Gambino crime family.

Police apprehended Anthony Comello in New Jersey on Saturday and expect to charge him with murdering Cali, the New York Police Department's Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea told a news conference. An assistant DA there referred a reporter to the office's public information officer, who was not immediately available.

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

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 auto to lure him outside.

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.

"I don't anticipate that will be done today", Shea said.

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.

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. 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. Shea said Cali was shot 10 times.

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