Springfield man pleads guilty to distributing child sexual abuse material Norwalk Police Remind Residents Not to Use Golf Carts on Public Roads

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – A Memphis man was shot and killed in the parking lot of an Antioch shopping center Sunday night.

Surveillance video shown to WSMV4 by one of the store owners shows a man running through the parking lot while at least seven shots were fired across the street, according to workers and neighbors.

“We were just sitting in the car on the way home and didn’t know what had happened,” said Jessica Brownlow.

Brownlow said when she arrived home, there were several police cars, a shot-up Mercedes and the road in front of her house was blocked off.

“I didn’t see or hear anything, so it was just the aftermath,” Brownlow said.

Beyoncé Robinson, Brownlow’s neighbor, said she saw everything.

“My friend and I were just getting some fresh air on the patio like we always do. We heard about seven or eight gunshots,” Robinson said. “We ran inside, came back out and saw the car speeding away.”

According to police, 23-year-old London Montgomery was driving a Mercedes SUV and was involved in a drug-related meeting when he was shot at by someone driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Surveillance video shows the Mercedes speeding away after the driver was shot in the chest, hip and leg before crashing into a wall, according to police.

“They landed right here, so we just kept checking to see why they were sitting there,” Robinson said. “We didn’t realize he was actually shot.”

After the shooting, officers rushed to the Hamilton Crossings area.

“When the police got here, we saw them bringing him out and we saw blood everywhere,” Robinson said. “It was just sad because I have a daughter and we were just sitting outside, so it could have been anyone in that area.”

According to police, Montgomery died after being transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

“It was definitely traumatic, to say the least,” Robinson said.

Neighbors said they were praying for Montgomery’s family but also wanted answers.

“I just want to know who did it so we know we’re safe here,” Brownlow said.

Metro Nashville Police are still searching for the possible shooters.
