AUSTIN (KXAN) — Family and friends came together Saturday afternoon to pay their respects for Conrado ‘Conrad’ Guadalupe Contreras, the victim of the Omni Hotel shooting that happened in early July.

The services were held at the Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Austin.

“Conrad was a devout Christian individual. He was an individual who, no matter what, would stand up for what he believed was right and he would never back down,” said Geoff Rohde, a fellow Yellow Cab Driver and friend of Conrad.

Conrad’s family has created a GoFundMe page to help with funeral arrangements and other expenses.
