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.

Five people were hurt and 150 dairy cows had to be euthanized when a tornado hit the small town of Dexter, New Mexico, on Tuesday. Highways were also closed in the Nebraska Panhandle, South Dakota and near the Wyoming border on Thursday due to the storm.
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.
