The reputed head of New York's Gambino crime family, Frank Cali, has been killed outside his home, the city's police have told U.S. media.
Police and FDNY units responded to Hilltop Terrace for a report of shots fired at 9:18 p.m., according to an FDNY and NYPD spokesman.
The Gambino Family was once among the most powerful criminal organizations in the US, but federal prosecutions in the 1980s and 1990s sent its top leaders to prison and diminished its reach.
"There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing", police said in a statement.
'The man was on the ground face-up.
Cali was said to have strong ties to the Sicilian Mafia, and experts suggested that his ascension was part of an attempt by the Gambinos to lower their high-profile image created by former godfather John Gotti.

Cali, who was born and raised in NY, was the nephew-in-law of John Gambino and the great-nephew of Bonanno mobsters Vito Bonventre and Giovanni Bonventre. The house is listed under the name of Rosaria Inzerillo.
According to the Associated Press, court documents referred to Cali as the underboss of the Gambino crime family. Gotti died while in prison in 2002 of throat cancer and Gambino died in 1976.
Cali had been considered a unifying figure in the crime family, in the years after John Gotti was convicted and sent to prison by cooperating mob witnesses.
Unlike other mobsters, Cali had few run-ins with the law.
The last mob boss to be killed was Paul Castellano, also the leader of the Gambino crime family at the time, who was murdered outside Sparks Steakhouse in Midtown Manhattan in 1985. Some of the indictments included murder, drug trafficking, robbery and extortion, according to The Mob Museum.
The New York Daily News reported in 2008 that Cali was among 62 people arrested on federal racketeering charges and he later pleaded guilty to conspiring to extort money.
