    DENVER - The Adams County Sheriff's office is looking for three men suspected in the shooting death of a security guard outside a nightclub.

    “I don’t understand why anybody would do something like that,” said Leland Minnick, the victim's brother. “It doesn’t make any difference who it is. Just senseless.”

    Sheriff spokeswoman Candi Baker says the three men and two nightclub security guards got into an altercation in the parking lot of the Grizzly Rose in unincorporated Adams County. One of the men began shooting at the security guards at about 10:50 p.m. Friday.

    Baker says 48-year-old Timothy Minnick, of Brighton, was wounded and later died at a hospital.

    "This is the holiday season," said Baker. "We unfortunately had to tell them their relative was killed. He was killed while performing his duties, trying to earn a paycheck. And, he was killed being unarmed, being defenseless."

    Deputies say a second security guard was injured and treated, but he was not shot.

    The men were described as wearing hooded sweatshirts and bandanas over the lower half of their faces. Baker says they drove away in a mid-90s SUV, possibly a Jimmy or a Blazer, with tinted back windows. Deputies say a heavyset woman with long hair was also seen inside the getaway car.

    Leland Minnick says his brother had worked at the Grizzly Rose for 18 months when the shooting happened and had chosen the bar for extra work because he liked the music there.

    "He was doing it to make ends meet, you know," said Leland Minnick.

    He says his brother, who lived in California until 1994, used to work as a Brighton Police officer, a job Timothy Minnick was "gung ho" about.

    "I don't understand why anybody would do something like that," said Leland Minnick. "It doesn't make any difference who it is. Just senseless."

    People with information are asked to contact Adams County Sheriff's office: 720-332-1313.

    Not a heavy gang area, and I don't recall a lot of problems with that country dance club.

    Sounds like these 3 Homies wanted to knock off the club. Could have been real ugly if the had gotten inside. It too bad the guard had to loose his life over it, wonder why he wasn't armed? Probably didn't have a chance to go into lock down when the 3 hoods showed up, or maybe had no plan.

    It says he was unarmed in the article. Too bad, when I was workin in bar's two big concerns were drunks with a grudge who got kicked out right before closing, and someone trying to rob us during closing.

    As certain 'gangs ' have tried to overtake and control certain bars around here, or kicked out and been barred from them..... there have been several shootings. I think so far, the good guys are losing as bouncers and owners have been killed. Some .. have just closed their doors and said 'no', they aren't going to allow it even if it meant closing the doors.

    It's a (and you will please excuse the term) Hick bar. County western theme, dancing and music. I am not aware of any spurred boot, 10 gallon hat wearin' ganstas in Denver.

    My money is on drug deal in the parking lot, robbery, or car...well truck theft. Taking over the place as a base of operations...no.

    Although not a particularly dangerous state to live in, there is no a reason to not be armed. This is in respect to very good Colorado CC laws. I wonder if there was a "NO weapons at work policy" at this nightclub.

    Other than the Adams County Sherriff entering your information into the Colorado Crime Information Center database (lame in my opinion), the Sheriff seems good about CC. There are only about 5 percent denials and revocations per pear.

    I just sent this to a friend of mine who is the manager for one of the bands playing there next month. I hope they catch the shooters soon.

    Personally, if you are a "security guard" you should be armed. Whether it is CC or OC - it is just stupid to hire someone as security if there is no way to even attempt to keep security.

    I work security 2 nights a week at a nightclub in Detroit. I always have my Glock 19, knife, maglite, and my asp on me at all times.

    I believe all Colorado CC recipients are entered into said nonexistent database that by law is not supposed to exist.

    At any time an item with your name on it is run through the police computer (drivers license, vehicle plates) your name pops up on the CBI list just like a fugitive, felon and so on. They then have to open up the flag to see what it is.
