A 35-year-old man in Washington state was arrested this week for allegedly killing his 8-month-old son, fatally shooting the infant in the head while the boy was asleep in his crib and then telling his wife that he had only fired blanks.

Dion Lamar Montgomery was taken into custody on Wednesday and charged with first-degree murder, homicide, and unlawful possession of a firearm in the slaying of young Alaisea Matai Montgomery, records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

Just before he allegedly executed his own son, Montgomery allegedly fired multiple shots at two other individuals on the street just outside of his home in an unprovoked attack, leading to two counts of first-degree assault and an additional firearm charge.

According to a news release from the Seattle Police Department, officers at about 6:30 p.m. on May 8, responded to call about a shooting at a residence in the 3000 block of 21st Avenue West. Upon arriving at the scene, first responders said they made contact with an adult female who stated that her child — later identified as Alaisea Montgomery — had been shot.

Firefighters with the Seattle Fire Department arrived and pronounced the child dead at the scene. Police secured the area until the Homicide and Crime Scene Investigation Units arrived and took over the scene.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office performed an autopsy and determined that Alaisea’s manner of death was a homicide and the cause of death was a single gunshot wound to the head.

Court records obtained by the Seattle Times provided disturbing details about the incident.
