Woman Dead After Cingular Call Center Shooting

A 20-year-old Lubbock woman is dead and her boyfriend is charged with murder.

22-year-old Raymon Montelongo Jr. was arrested just minutes after turning himself into police and is being held at the Lubbock County Jail.. Montelongo allegedly shot Erica Perez in the Cingular call center parking lot where she worked around 1:05pm Friday afternoon.

About 1:38pm, Montelongo came to LPD with information regarding the shooting. His black Monte Carlo match the vehicle description of the car on scene. Police processed the car and found a semi-automatic pistol. Perez died two hours later at University Medical Center.

Lubbock Police believe Erica was returning from lunch when her boyfriend, Raymon Montelongo blocked her car and jumped inside. Police say the couple did live together for a year, and they do believe domestic violence could have been a factor in the young woman's death.

"That's one of things we're looking into at this time. What is the exact nature of their relationship. I think it's certainly possible that this was some sort of domestic violence," said Lt. Roy Bassett, LPD spokesperson.

Witnesses told police they heard the two arguing loudly and then heard the two gunshots that would end up taking Erica's life. Erica's coworkers at Cingular couldn't believe what had happened after they heard the news. "I think it's pretty crazy. I guess obviously anybody could walk into any Wal-Mart or any place around here and shoot somebody. It's a shame that it has to happen, but I guess we need to post armed guards up," said one Cingular employee.

Even though Cingular has on-site security officers, inside sources say that employees have voiced their concern about security issues while leaving and entering work. "Yes, it's very scary...I mean were out here all the time, with not a lot of security," said another employee.
