Dakan, 36, was rushed to the hospital where he later died.

According to prosecutors, Arenas-Foote shot Dakan in the back of the head because his car had been impounded and he did not want to pay the $300 towing fee.

Adams County deputies spotted the car near Northglenn Drive and Grant Street less than 20 minutes later. During a search, deputies found a .38 caliber semi-automatic handgun in Arenas-Foote’s pocket.

Arenas-Foote was found guilty of both first and second-degree murder. He will be sentenced on Nov. 12.
