AURORA, Colo. — One man is dead and another is in critical condition after a shooting outside of an Aurora sports bar Saturday morning.

The dead man has been identified as 22-year-old Christopher Bryant, Jr.

Just after 1:30 a.m., police arrived to the Primos Sports Bar located at 1433 Chester St. to find two men in their early 20s suffering from gunshot wounds in the parking lot.

Other officers were then called to the scene after a crowd of 100 people who were acting unruly and interfering, according to Sgt. Cassidee Carlson with Aurora police.

Officers immediately administered aid on the two victims, and firefighters transported the men to a local hospital, where Bryant was later pronounced dead.

The other victim remains in the hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to police.

Investigators are trying to determine whether the victims or suspect were inside the bar before the altercation outside.

Crime Stoppers is offering $2,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the party responsible.

A suspect has not been identified. At this time, detectives do not know much information about the events leading up to the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. T. Wilson at (303) 739-6711 or Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-STOP (7867).

A memorial prayer vigil for Bryant is scheduled for Monday at 6 p.m. at the site of the shooting.
