WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Montez Tyrone Caples, 21, of Waterloo was in court Friday to face a charge of murdering a Parkersburg, Iowa man earlier this week.

34-year-old Robert Joseph Shannon was found slumped over the steering wheel of his car, with the engine still running, Wednesday afternoon.  He'd been shot in the back of the head.  Neighbors called police after noticing him at the intersection of Poplar and Whitter Avenue.

According to witnesses, Caples was angry with Shannon over an argument Shannon had with one of Caples' friends.

A judge set bond for Caples at $1 million.  His preliminary hearing is set for his birthday-- December 27th.
