According to court records, Tony Brock, 37, of Columbus, was arraigned on a charge of murder in Franklin County Municipal Court and was issued a $500,000 bond.
Brock is accused of fatally shooting Bret Bennett, 52, after police received reports that a man driving a black pickup truck shot at a person in a maroon Subaru on Interstate 670 eastbound. Officers arrived at the scene, between North 4th Street and Cleveland Avenue, at 5:02 p.m. after Bennett was shot.
Bennett was taken to Grant Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 5:26 p.m.

Police have not released information on what led to the shooting.
