Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: NM   USA   Sun. Oct. 06, 2002
Summary: Deputy Damacio Montano was shot and killed when he and his brother, a New Mexico State Police officer, helped break up a fight at a Los Lunas restaurant at 0130 hours.

Both brothers were off duty when the fight broke out in the restaurant. They identified themselves as police officers and assisted the bouncers who took the two female suspects outside. They were standing outside when a man got out of a vehicle and opened fire with a handgun. Deputy Montano was fatally wounded and his brother was wounded in the hip. All three suspects, who were known gang members, were arrested in connection with Deputy Montano's murder.

On August 12, 2003, the shooter was convicted of murdering Deputy Montano and of attempted murder of Deputy Montano's brother.

Deputy Montano had been employed with the Valencia County Sheriff's Department for 10 months. He had previously served with the Santa Rosa Police Department, Western New Mexico University Police Department, and Artesia Police Department for 16 additional months. He is survived by his wife and two young children.
