Personal dispute might have led to murder of Gambino boss

The man cops believe gunned down Gambino mob boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali may have done so because of a “personal dispute” — and not because of any mafia-related business, law enforcement sources told The Post.
The suspect, who the sources say is a 24-year-old Staten Island resident with no criminal record, is being questioned in connection to the brazen Wednesday night shooting, and cops are looking into the “possibility” that he had some sort of beef with the powerful mobster.
He was arrested by the US Marshals’ New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force in Brick, N.J., where he has family, according to sources. He was awaiting extradition Saturday afternoon.
The shooting was definitely not mob-related the sources said.
Authorities got the suspect’s fingerprint off the license plate of Cali’s silver Cadillac Escalade SUV — which he handed to the mobster after allegedly smashing into the car, the sources said.
Cali, 53, was shot several times in front of his brick mansion in the lavish Todt Hill neighborhood at about 9:20 p.m. His wife and young children were inside, police sources told The Post.
He shook hands with the shooter before he was killed, a source said.
