A 21-year-old Gary man was ordered to be held without bail, after he was charged with a fatal shooting after a crash on I-57.

Angelo Baldwin has been charged with a felony count of first-degree murder, according to Illinois State police.

About 1:15 a.m. July 1, officers responded to calls of a person who was shot on the expressway and found a 21-year-old man who had been shot multiple times, state police said.

An investigation found that two vehicles crashed in the southbound lanes of I-57 at Wentworth, state police said. Both vehicles pulled off the road and the driver of the other vehicle got out of his vehicle and approached Baldwin.

After a brief encounter, the man returned to his vehicle, and Baldwin allegedly followed him, pulled out a gun, and opened fire, state police said. He then fled the scene.

A passenger of the vehicle, a 27-year-old woman, drove the man to the hospital, state police said. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

A day later, Baldwin was arrested by Jackson Police in Tennessee after a traffic stop, state police said. He was extradited to Cook County jail July 16.

Baldwin was ordered to be held without bail a day later.
