Dority was arrested and pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder with a firearm during a court appearance on Tuesday.

Court documents obtained by the Detroit Free Press revealed that Payne’s girlfriend told cops that she and the basketballer were asked to come to Dority’s home.

Dority told police that his father had dropped him off at his home in Orange County.

Payne and his girlfriend were in a vehicle that was parked in the roadway at an intersection.

Court documents allege that Dority shot Payne after the NBA star got out of his car.

Dority claimed that Payne was “making movements with his right hand in the shape of his waistband”.

And, he alleged that Payne was “getting in his face and was intimidating”, according to the affidavit.

He’s accused of firing a single shot at the basketballer.

Dority apparently believed the shooting was “justified” because he was “protecting his family”, court documents state.

One witness told police that Payne wasn’t threatening toward Dority in any way.

And Orange County Sheriff’s deputies felt the basketballer “didn’t pose an immediate threat”.

Payne was unarmed and cops didn’t find a gun in his car.

Payne first rose to fame at Michigan State University during his senior year, when he averaged 16.6 points and 7.3 rebounds on over 50 per cent shooting from the floor, according to Sports Illustrated.

After graduating, he was drafted to the NBA in 2014 by the Atlanta Hawks.

He then had stints with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Orlando Magic.
