2 El Monte police officers killed in motel shooting have been identified

Responding to reports of a stabbing at a motel on Tuesday night, two El Monte officers were shot and killed, identified Wednesday by city and county coroner officials as CPL. Michael Domingo Paredes and Officer Joseph Anthony Santana.

“Both men were raised in the city of El Monte and were deeply related to the community they serve,” city officials said in a statement posted to Instagram along with photos of both men.

They both lived in Upland, coroner’s officials said Wednesday afternoon.

Officials said the 42-year-old Parades had worked as a full-time officer in the department since July 2000 and had worked in several specialized assignments before attaining the rank of corporal. He began his law enforcement career as a cadet with the EMPD.

Parades leaves behind a wife, a daughter and a son.

Officials said Santana, 31, came to the department after working three years as a deputy sheriff with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. He was hired in the department in 2021. He previously worked with the city as a part-time public works employee prior to his law enforcement career.

Santana leaves behind a wife, a daughter and twin boys.

“Corporal parades and Officer Santana paid the ultimate sacrifice in the display of a noble profession, a community they loved,” officials said.

Officers responded to the Siesta Inn on Garvey Avenue, but were immediately fired upon, officials said. Both were taken to LAC+USC Medical Center, where they died.

Officials said the suspect was shot dead by at least one other officer outside the hotel. He died on the spot and his identity could not be ascertained till Wednesday afternoon.
