Slain El Monte Police Officers Identified; Investigation Continuing


Two police officers who were fatally shot when responding to a stabbing report at an El Monte motel were identified Wednesday, while a memorial of flowers and tributes continued to grow outside El Monte Police Department headquarters and investigators worked to piece together the circumstances of the shooting.

The shooting, which also left the suspect dead, occurred about 5:10 p.m. Tuesday at the Siesta Inn at 10327 Garvey Ave., near the San Bernardino (10) Freeway, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which was assisting El Monte police with the investigation.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office and the city of El Monte on Wednesday afternoon identified the slain officers as Joseph Anthony Santana, 31, and Michael Domingo Paredes, 42, both of Upland. City officials said both were married fathers, and both were raised in El Monte.
