Victim of road rage shooting has died

Duran's family has created a donation account to help with transportation and funeral costs:

With a heavy heart, we have to share our brother was taken from us far too soon. We all knew him as the funny, intelligent, witty, and adventurous man he was. Every song he sang, every mountain he climbed, he did it with everything he had. We are bringing Michael home from Montana and would love you all to join us in celebrating his life.
