Recently, a Colorado judge sentenced Guillermo Pinuelas, 23, to 40 years in prison for the killing of Kaid Dunlap. Pinuellas was convicted of second-degree murder in June, according to the 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

On April 27, 2021, Pinuellas went to an apartment complex in Colorado and the home of Dunlap to collect a debt, prosecutors said.

Dunlap didn’t have the money, so Pinuellas returned the next night. When Dunlap didn’t have the money that time, Pinuellas shot him 13 times on the balcony.

Dunlap’s brother held the victim in his arms as he bled and died.

Several of the bullets penetrated the doors and walls of the apartment, according to prosecutors. Dunlap’s brother, sister-in-law, and their children were all inside the home at the time of the shooting.

Pinuellas was arrested in his apartment the next day after disposing of the murder weapon, prosecutors said. He also tried to bleach his car and wash his clothes.

Prosecutors did not reveal what Dunlap owed money for.

"This was a horrific and senseless crime," said District Attorney Brian Mason. "13 shots into an occupied apartment, a cold-blooded murder, a young life lost, a family forever altered. For what? To settle a perceived score? It's truly outrageous.

“This kind of violence will be met with thorough investigation and swift prosecution, as it was here. I'm grateful to the Northglenn Police Department and my team at the District Attorney's Office for their work securing this conviction and sentence."
