Detective Montion was shot and killed during a shooting spree while on his lunch break. He was at a local business when a former employee walked in and opened fire, striking Detective Montion in the chest. Another employee started struggling with the suspect but was also shot and killed. Although mortally wounded, Detective Montion was able to return fire and kill the suspect. Investigating officers discovered that the man had also murdered his wife prior to the shooting spree.

Detective Montion had served with the agency for 17 years. He was survived by his wife, son, and two daughters. His son later went on to also serve with the El Paso Police Department.

If anyone has a copy of the RAP song that played on the city's radio stations expressing the disgustful way in which Norman and his family were treated by Mayor Suzy Azar and her City council, please place a link here so others can be reminded and the EPMPOA and it's members don't forget and don't let the disrespecful events be repeated. Thanks
