The man accused of shooting and killing a 7-Eleven clerk during a robbery earlier this month has confessed to the crime, according to court paperwork.

Documents detail Joseph Fatigoni's account of what happened, saying he never wanted to shoot anyone but everything changed when Amanjeet Toor didn't listen to his commands.

Police say Fatigoni shot and killed Toor during a robbery of the convenience store near 16th Street and Southern Avenue on August 8. Police say Fatigoni walked in, demanded money and told the two employees to move to the back of the store. Authorities said Fatigoni ordered both to get onto the ground.

Fatigoni says he didn't mean to hurt Toor and said the two struggled over the gun. He said he only fired to get Toor to back off, according to court records.

Fatigoni was arrested at his home, just blocks from the store where Toor was killed and where he was said to be a familiar face.

Authorities have charged Fatigoni with one count of murder, two counts of kidnapping and three counts of armed robbery. 

A judge set his bail at $1 million.
