HERVEY CITY, Ill. (WCIA) — Members of the Central Illinois towing community came together Tuesday night to honor one of their own killed in a shooting this week.

Gregory Hostetler was killed on Monday over what the Sheriff’s Office said was a $50 tow. Officials said he got into an argument with Tiimon Perry, who shot the 48-year-old tow business owner in the head.

On Tuesday, family, friends, coworkers and fellow tow truck drivers gathered for a memorial procession in their trucks. Hostetler’s nephew Wyatt Wages was among them.

“I just want to thank J&K Towing, TMG towing, Owens, Precision, Lugari, Richard’s, Shaners for showing us amazing support,” Wages said on Facebook. “Greg would have loved this.”

A GoFundMe has been set up to help pay for funeral and burial expenses. That fundraiser can be found here.
