Gotti, who later died in prison, took over the Gambino family at the time.
The reputed boss of the US Gambino crime family was shot to death in front of his NY home by a gunman who may have staged a vehicle accident to lure him outside, dying a virtual unknown compared with his swaggering 1980s-era predecessor, John Gotti.
The Gambino criminal organisation is one of the "Five Families" of organised crime in NY, alongside the Bonanno, Colombo, Genovese and Lucchese families.
Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said there has been a slight urise in alleged mob-related violence in NY within the past year.
Cali's killing comes less than a week after the death of legendary mobster Carmine Persico, the longtime boss of the Colombo crime family.
Investigators are probing whether Cali's slaying was sanctioned by New York's five families, or whether it was the work of a rogue gunman, sources say.

Both John Gambino and Cali had "very strong ties" to Sicily, allowing Gambino to effectively negotiate the crime family's Sicilian and American factions, Probation said.
