DENVER -- One of the victims of Friday's shootings in Denver is being remembered as a "mellow, cool kid" who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

21-year-old Justin O'Donnell and another man were killed by gunshots on a sidewalk near Bruce Randolph Ave. and York St. on Friday afternoon. Police are searching for two suspects in connection with the crime.

"He was caught in the shooting but he wasn't affiliated with gangs or nothing like that," said Eugene Buckman, Sr., O'Donnell's uncle. "He was basically in the wrong place at the wrong time."

O'Donnell was remembered in a candlelight vigil at the scene of the shootings on Saturday night. He was an aspiring musician with several songs and videos to his rap name, "720."

"He observed his surroundings, he observed everyone," said Felicia O'Donnell, the victim's aunt. "He didn't have to say anything. He could look at you and you know that he loved you, he respected you."

Police have not released the name of the other victim. Two other men suffered relatively minor injuries in the shootings. Descriptions of the suspects, who committed the crimes on foot, are not known or have not been released.
