CBS Local reported:


Adams County investigators are searching for three men wanted in connection with a Halloween murder.

Dillon Buenos, 24, was shot and killed in the driveway of his parents’ home near 74th Avenue and Krameria Drive. It happened just after 9:30 p.m. on Saturday.

“Dillon had just given the last bit of the candy out. He came outside with a friend,” Buenos’ mother Lucy Malone said.

Moments after he walked out the door Malone says she and Dillon’s father, Leo Bueno, heard gunshots. When they ran outside to see what was going on they found their son had been hit.

“She tried doing CPR and I was holding his hand, telling him hang on. Keep breathing, keep breathing,” Leo Bueno said.

Dillon Bueno died before reaching a hospital.

A witness told investigators the gunman approached and demanded Dillon Bueno hand over any valuables. When he refused the suspect opened fire; his two accomplices took off running.

According to the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, the three suspects were wearing “Halloween type” costumes described as black hoodies with skeleton bandanas…

…The Adams County Sheriff’s Office says the three suspects are believed to be black males in their late teens to early 20s. Their height ranges from 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-8 and have slender builds.

There’s a Go Fund Me Page set up to pay for Dillon’s funeral costs.
