Prosecutors say Gordon was having his sedan washed when he got into a fight with workers at a Chicago Citgo service station. Officials say Gordon left the car wash and returned about a half-hour later with a handgun. They say he shot Rosales in the back while he was drying a vehicle.

Authorities say the shooting was captured on a security camera.
