Inspector Giacomelli was shot and killed while conducting a murder investigation.

Inspector Giacomelli had gone to a home on Abbott Street to conduct an investigation into a murder that had occurred at the house the previous week. While he was inside the house, which was believed to be vacant, he was surprised by the suspect, who was a recent parolee, who shot him execution style. The suspect fled the scene, but was shot and killed during a shootout with police two nights later when officers located him in Modesto after receiving a tip on his whereabouts. Inspector Giacomelli's body was found inside the home by another inspector who had arranged to meet him at the scene.

Inspector Giacomelli had been employed with the Pittsburg Police Department for 23 years. He is survived by his wife and two teenage daughters.
