Jennifer Lewis convicted of first-degree murder in Grizzly Rose shooting
DENVER — Jennifer Lewis was convicted Wednesday of first-degree murder in the 2008 shooting of a security guard at the Grizzly Rose nightclub in Denver.
An Adams County District Court jury also convicted Lewis on three counts of attempted first-degree murder of two security guards and one off-duty police officer, announced a press release from the District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday.
Lewis was convicted of first-degree extreme difference murder regarding the slaying of Grizzly Rose security guard Timothy Minnick on Dec. 18, 2008, said the DA’s office.
According to evidence highlighted in the week-long trial, Lewis drove the getaway vehicle on the night of the murder. Three men accompanied her in her car to the Grizzly Rose the evening of the incident; Lewis then drove her vehicle to a side street, and waited for the men to return while they opened fire on security guards and off-duty officers.
Lewis and Gerald Gurule were indicted in March 2013 by an Adams County grand jury.
Gurule faces charges on two counts of first-degree murder, four counts of attempted first-degree murder and three counts of felony menacing, said the DA’s office.
Lewis will be sentence at 1:30 p.m. on April 23, and Gurule’s trial is set for April 28.
