Slain Officer To Be Honored at El Monte High Football Game


The No. 4 jersey worn by slain El Monte Police Department Officer Joseph Santana when he played football for El Monte High School will be presented to his family at halftime of Friday evening’s home game against Viewpoint.

Santana played safety and receiver for the Lions in 2008. His fellow officers and teammates will attend the ceremony, which will include a helicopter flyover, and former coach Joel Sanchez will speak.

The 2009 El Monte High School graduate and Sgt. Michael Paredes, 42, were fatally shot the afternoon of June 14 when they entered a room at the Siesta Inn at 10327 Garvey Ave. to confront a suspect in a reported stabbing.
