DENVER – The man accused of firing a gun several times near Coors Field on Saturday was charged Wednesday with two felony counts of criminal mischief and two felony counts of using a prohibited large-capacity magazine during commission of a crime.

Bryan Lambert, 39, also faces a misdemeanor charge of using a prohibited weapon in addition to the four felonies, the Denver District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday afternoon.

Lambert fired several shots from a Smith & Wesson M&P15, an AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle, late Saturday morning in the 2700 block of Blake Street. When police arrived, he put the gun and several high-capacity magazines on the ground and was arrested, according to a probable cause statement for his arrest.

Officers found nine spent shell casings inside a nearby parking garage and two vehicles that had been hit by bullets. Surveillance video showed Lambert firing the rifle on several different levels of the garage and also leaning over the garage’s edge and pointing the rifle into traffic.

No one was injured during the incident.
