The Denver East High suspect who was shooting faced previous gun charges

DENVER — Multiple sources have confirmed to Denver7 Investigates that the suspected gunman who wounded two faculty members at Denver East High School Wednesday was previously arrested on alleged weapons charges.

Austin Lyle, 17, was also on parole at the time of the shooting, sources said.

According to Cherry Creek Public Schools, he was “disciplined and removed from Overland High School for violating board policies.”

Sources tell Denver7 Investigates that police arrested Lyle in late 2021 and prosecutors charged him with criminal possession of a dangerous weapon and possession of a large capacity magazine. He was placed in a court-ordered juvenile diversion program and later placed on probation.

Lyle was frisked every day at East High School as part of a security arrangement. According to the Denver Police Department, the shooting happened Wednesday during this sweep.

It’s still unclear what Lyle intended to do with the gun he was carrying if it hadn’t been found. Lyle was found dead later that day with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound in a Park County wooded area.
