In a tweet, the ASU Police Department said Montgomery was a 13-year veteran of the department and is survived by his wife and four children.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family,” the tweet said.
Gov. Doug Ducey ordered flags at all state buildings be lowered to half-staff Friday to honor Montgomery.
“He put his life on the line to protect others, and we are grateful for his bravery, sacrifice and service. Our prayers are with his wife, four children, loved ones and the ASU Police Department during this difficult time,” Ducey said in a tweet.
Officers surrounded the Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Office in downtown Phoenix on Thursday afternoon for a procession for Montgomery.
