TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The man facing a murder charge in connection with a shooting in a Marana shopping center parking lot was back in court Thursday, July 27.

Marcus Dickson pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder on Thursday, July 27. He has a case management hearing set for Aug. 28.

Authorities said Dickson fatally shot Martin Padilla on June 30 during a road-rage incident. Dickson was initially arrested for manslaughter.

The interim complaint filed in court on Thursday, July 20, by Marana Police Department detailed what investigators learned about the moments leading to the deadly shooting. It described Dickson and Padilla getting into an argument, Padilla taking Dickson to the ground and Dickson shooting Padilla twice.

Padilla was teaching his son, Hamza, how to drive when this happened. Hamza said they were on their way to Burger King with his siblings in the back seat when Dickson started tailgating them.

A funeral was held for Padilla on July 5 at a mosque in midtown. An honor guard attended the service for the Army veteran.

There is a GoFundMe for the Padilla family: https://www.gofundme.com/assist-family-of-slain-us-vet
