Vigil remembers 47-year-old Brian Glen Montgomery killed in shooting at E. 88th and Superior

Victim's son hurt; police release suspect photos

CLEVELAND - More than a hundred people gathered Tuesday night off E. 77th and Kinsman to remember Brian Glen Montgomery, 47, who was killed Sunday in a shooting outside a store at E. 88th and Superior.

Montgomery's 19-year-old son Brandon was also injured in the shooting.

Cleveland Police released surveillance photos of the men they believe are responsible and at the vigil the call was made to bring them to justice.

"Anybody that got any information to identify the people in the tapes it ain't snitching it's reporting a crime," said Khalid Samad of Peace in the Hood. "The sooner we can get these devils off the street the better."

On hand were Montgomery's mother, brother and at least two of his children.

"He don't want nobody retaliating," said his son Joseph Efford. "Just everybody get together, laugh and have a good time," in remembering his father he said.

When asked what message he'd have for his father's killer Montgomery's son Jovon Efford said "hopefully God just forgive you. I mean you don't know no better and maybe you could become a better person out of this," he said.
