Bruno grew up around the corner from Peter DiVittorio, and the two of them became inseparable in kindergarten. As partners, they developed political and criminal control of the old neighborhoods between the river and the south side. They own numerous bars, clubs, pawn shops, hotels, restaurants, and storefronts throughout St. Patrick’s, Commerce City, and Woodland Park.
Bruno, a short, round man with a head as bald as a billiard cue and hands the size of catcher’s mitts that swung at his knees, tipped his right shoulder when he entered the bar. The movement gave the appearance that he burst into a room, and the eyes that turned his way saw a guerilla silhouetted in the doorway.
