DENVER — The man arrested after multiple rifle shots were fired in Denver's River North district Saturday appeared in court.

Bryan Trent Lambert, 39, made his first court appearance in Denver District Court Sunday morning. He is being held for investigation of prohibited use of a weapon and criminal mischief.

No one was injured in the incident, which unfolded about noon near 27th and Blake Streets. Officers had advised people to avoid the busy area – with several bars and restaurants nearby – as police searched for the suspect.

Lambert was taken into custody Saturday afternoon in a Coors Field parking structure, Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen said. A rifle was recovered from the scene.

Video shared by Marie Miller, a resident of a RiNo apartment complex, shows the suspect armed with a rifle pacing back and forth in the Coors Field parking garage. Police declined to say if the suspect was targeting anyone or was firing at random.
