WHEATON, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago tow truck driver has been ordered held in lieu of $3 million bond in the shooting death of a semi-trailer driver.

DuPage County prosecutors say Anthony Tillmon of Lansing and truck driver Eduardo Munoz of Northlake engaged in a road rage argument for several miles before the tow truck driver opened fire.

Prosecutors say that according to witnesses, the 34-year-old Tillmon reached across his passenger seat and fired multiple shots before driving off. The 43-year-old Munoz was able to steer his truck to a stop on shoulder of Interstate-88 near Oak Brook. He died later at Elmhurst Hospital from three wounds.

Authorities say GPS and I-Pass records place the tow truck Tillmon was driving Friday at the scene of the shooting.

Fiancee Michele Salerno says Munoz was headed home when shot.

It wasn’t immediately known if Tillmon has a lawyer.
