Detective Anthony Venditti was shot and killed by members of the Mafia he was investigating. Detective Venditti and his partner were conducting surveillance of known Mafia associates when they stopped at a local diner to use the restroom. When Detective Venditti exited the car he was confronted by three suspects who began to push him against a wall. Detective Venditti's partner exited her vehicle and drew her weapon, but was shot and wounded by one of the suspects. The suspect then shot and killed Detective Venditti before being wounding himself by Detective Venditti's partner.

All three suspects were apprehended but acquitted of murder. They were later convicted of racketeering and sentenced to prison.
