“He told them he's not in no gang, and he laughed at them,” L.D. Parker said. “He said, 'Man, I'm 38 years old. I got kids. I got grandkids. I don't play games like that. He got on his motorcycle, pulled off and left. Then, the guys jumped in the car and chased him.”

Investigators believe the shooting may have stemmed from that argument.

The men police are looking for were last seen in a gold 1999 Buick Regal four-door sedan, police said.

A small memorial replaced the wrecked motorcycle where Montgomery was killed.
