Officials said both cars pulled off the road and the driver of the one vehicle got out of his vehicle and approached Angelo Baldwin, 21.

After a short exchange, the man went back to his vehicle, but Baldwin followed him, pulled out a gun and opened fire, the Chicago Sun Times reported.

Police said a passenger of the vehicle, a 27-year-old woman, drove the man to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

On July 2, Baldwin was arrested in Tennessee after a traffic stop, police said.

Baldwin was extradited to Cook County jail on July 16, officials said. On July 17, Baldwin was officially charged with a felony count of first-degree murder and was ordered to be held without bail, police said.
