Dickson, who had been indicted on a second-degree murder charge, will be sentenced July 30.

Police said Dickson shot Martin Padilla in a shopping center parking lot on June 30, 2017.

According to documents obtained by Tucson News Now, Dickson had been behind Padilla's car for two intersections before the parking lot where the shooting happened.

First, Dickson allegedly honked when Padilla's car didn't immediately turn on a green arrow at North Cortaro Road and Arizona Pavilions.

Still behind Padilla's car, Dickson honked again when the car slowed down while pulling into the shopping center.

According to the complaint, that's when Padilla pulled over to let Dickson pass. The paperwork states that Dickson stopped his car in front of Padilla's and both men left their vehicles.

An argument became a fight, according to the court papers.

It states the two men started pushing and swinging at each other until Padilla took Dickson to the ground.

Dickson told police that he could not get Padilla off of him, so he pulled out his gun and shot twice.

The officer who filed the paperwork noted that Dickson is approximately 6-foot-4 and 300 pounds while Padilla was 5-11 and 215 pounds.

Padilla's son was there and told police Dickson started the fight, according to the interim complaint.
