Memorial Service Set for 2 Slain El Monte Police Officers

A memorial service will be held next week in Ontario for two El Monte Police Department officers who were fatally shot when they responded to a reported stabbing at a motel.

The service for Sgt. Michael Paredes, 42, and Officer Joseph Santana, 31, will be held at 10 a.m. June 30 at Toyota Arena. The event will be closed to the public and media, but is expected to be live-streamed.

Paredes and Santana were fatally shot the afternoon of June 14 when they entered a motel room to confront a suspect in a reported stabbing. The suspect, 35-year-old Justin William Flores, ran from the room after the shooting and exchanged gunfire with at least one other officer in a parking lot. He subsequently died at the scene of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
