PHOENIX — Jurors who convicted a man of second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of an off-duty Tempe fire captain during a 2018 altercation in Scottsdale have also found aggravating factors in the trial’s other phase.
Maricopa County Superior Court officials say an Aug. 30 sentencing is set for 22-year-old Hezron Parks.
He was convicted Wednesday in the killing of 34-year-old Kyle Brayer.
Parks also was found guilty of disorderly conduct, but jurors were unable to reach a verdict on aggravated assault charges.
Brayer was riding on the back of a golf cart in February 2018. He got off to confront the driver of a car that was closely following the golf cart.
According to police, Brayer was shot as he approached the other vehicle.
Parks testified that he fired in self-defense.
