The son of a man gunned down outside a Denver bar last week says he wants justice for his father’s killer.

Guillermo Ornelas and his friend, Jose Herrera, were found shot to death outside of the Welcome Inn bar at 37th Street and Chestnut Place in the RiNo neighborhood Friday night.

Ornelas’ son, Brandon Nellis, said he found out through a phone call that his father had been killed and rushed straight to the bar, where he saw his father lying lifeless on the parking lot.

“I had seen his body on the floor and I just wasn’t sure if it was him,” Nellis said. “I went closer and discovered it was him and…it was just unbelievable.”

Herrera’s body lay next to Ornelas’. Nellis said the two men had been playing pool at the bar that night.
