SFPD Mourns the Loss of Sergeant Christopher Morris
On Wednesday, June 15, 2022, at approximately 1:21 p.m., San Francisco Police officers were conducting an investigation on the 500 block of Moscow Street. During the investigation, officers received information that the occupant of the residence was inside and possibly suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Officers entered the residence, located the victim, rendered aid, and summoned medics to the scene. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.   The victim was identified as 40-year-old San Francisco Police Sergeant, Christopher Morris. Morris, a member of Class 212, was a 16-year veteran of the SFPD.  Chief William Scott and the Command Staff of the San Francisco Police Department express their condolences to the officer's family. The Department's Behavioral Science Unit was notified and has offered counseling to the officer's family and to his colleagues.

Two El Monte Officers Shot

The officers were identified Wednesday afternoon as Cpl. Michael Paredes and Officer Joseph Santana.

Capt. Andrew Meyer, who leads the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau, said officers responded to a call for a possible stabbing at a motel Tuesday afternoon, confronted suspect Justin Flores in a motel room and fired their weapons. Flores ran out of the room and into a parking lot, where the officers fired again, Meyer said. Meyer said a gun was recovered next to Flores’ body.

El Monte Mayor Jessica Ancona was nearly brought to tears when she spoke of two police officers. She described them as “great fathers and great men. ... They grew up here; to us, they’re El Monte homegrown,” she said. “They’re our boys.” A memorial fund and funeral service details will be released later in the week.
