Dion Lamar Montgomery Was Taken into Custody

In a disturbing turn of events, Dion Lamar Montgomery, a 35-year-old man from Washington state, stands accused of a heinous crime - the alleged killing of his 8-month-old son, Alaisea Matai Montgomery. The unfolding of this tragedy paints a harrowing picture of violence and despair.

The incident, which occurred on May 8th, started with Montgomery allegedly firing multiple shots at two individuals outside his residence in an unprovoked attack. This led to charges of first-degree assault, a firearm offense, and eventually the devastating loss of young Alaisea's life.

Responding to a call regarding a shooting at the 3000 block of 21st Avenue West, first responders found Alaisea shot in his crib, with a single gunshot wound to the head. Despite efforts by firefighters, the infant was pronounced dead at the scene. The ensuing investigation revealed a disturbing sequence of events, including Montgomery's alleged involvement in the street shooting and subsequent arrest.

Details obtained from court records and witness accounts paint a chilling picture of Montgomery's actions. Allegedly under the influence of PCP and claiming his actions were influenced by demons, Montgomery reportedly shot his son while the child slept, later telling his wife it was only a blank round. The mother, distraught and confused, discovered the tragic truth after finding her son with a fatal gunshot wound.

Montgomery's troubled history, including past convictions for assault, theft, and other offenses between 2002 and 2013, adds a darker context to this heartbreaking story. He currently remains in King County Jail on a bond of $5 million, awaiting his upcoming court appearance on May 23rd.

As this community grapples with the shock and horror of this senseless act, it serves as a stark reminder of the significance of mental health awareness and support services. Our hearts go out to all those affected by this tragedy, and we emphasize the importance of seeking help and intervention in times of distress and turmoil.
