9-month-old Baby shot to Death by Father High on Drugs in Washington; Aimed straight at Head while Baby was Asleep leaving Mom Traumatized

According to authorities, a man from Washington is now facing criminal charges for reportedly shooting his 9-month-old son while the baby was asleep.

Seattle police responded to a distress call from a woman in the Magnolia neighborhood on May 8 around 6:30 p.m. The woman reported that her child had been shot, according to a statement from the police.

Members of the Seattle Fire Department arrived and sadly declared the child deceased at the scene.

According to online jail records, the child’s father, Dion Lamont Montgomery, 35, was arrested on March 9 and is facing charges of first-degree murder, first-degree assault, and unlawful possession of a firearm.

He is currently in custody at the King County Correctional Facility with a bond set at $5 million.

It remains uncertain if Montgomery has secured legal representation or responded to the charges against him.

According to court records, Montgomery allegedly shot his son and then proceeded to fire four to five shots at two individuals in close proximity before making his escape, as reported by KIRO 7.

There were no reported injuries, as stated in the court records.

According to court records, when police located Montgomery three blocks from the scene, he reportedly admitted to using PCP and claimed that “demons” compelled him to fire the gun, as reported by KIRO 7.

According to court records, the mother of the boy informed the police that her husband claimed to have fired a blank round when she heard the sound of the gun firing.

“Tragically, his life was taken in an horrific way. Not only has this hurt affected our family, but he has touched the lives of our community,” she wrote in a GoFundMe fundraiser for funeral expenses.
