Surveillance video of the killing showed a man, allegedly Mr Comello, crash his vehicle into Mr Cali's parked SUV, drawing Mr Cali outside in what might have been a ploy to lure him out of the house, Mr Shea said.
NBC New York reported that sources say Cali's murder wasn't mob-related. The suspect shot Cali as many as 10 times, Shea said.
When asked about the suspect's arrest record, Shea said he "crossed paths in some limited circumstances with the NYPD", including getting a parking ticket on Staten Island the day Cali was killed.
The truck involved in the encounter has since been recovered, though the murder weapon has not, according to the police official. No other details about the arrest were immediately available Saturday afternoon.
Woman with cancer who sued J&J awarded $29M by California jury
It is one of the most mysterious cancers, and it's not clear why asbestos travels to ovarian tissues, but it is well-documented. Ms Leavitt's trial originally included J&J's talc supplier, Imerys Talc America, a unit of Imerys SE, as a co-defendant.
Police are looking into whether this was the work of an organized crime gang, or a faction inside the Gambino family, including John Gotti's brother, Gene, who was just released just months ago after serving 29 years for dealing heroin.
It is unclear what Comello was doing in Brick Township, although staffers at Ocean County Scanner News say he has family in the town.
The last Mafia boss to be rubbed out in New York City was Gambino don "Big Paul" Castellano, who was assassinated while getting out of a black limousine outside a high-end Manhattan steakhouse in 1985.
