DENVER (AP) - A 32-year-old man arrested in connection with the shooting death of a security guard at a Denver nightclub in 2008 has pleaded guilty to reckless manslaughter and attempted first-degree assault.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1iFWE1M ) Gerald Gurule struck a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty Friday in the Dec. 12, 2008, shooting of Timothy Minnick at the Grizzly Rose. Prosecutors agreed to recommend a sentence of 20 to 32 years in prison.

The shooting happened when Minnick confronted masked thieves in the parking lot of the nightclub.

Thirty-four-year-old Jennifer Lynne Lewis was sentenced earlier this year to life in prison after she was convicted of multiple charges, including first-degree murder, attempted trespassing and three counts of attempted murder.

At her trial, prosecutors described Lewis as the getaway driver and Gurule as the shooter.
