Two administrators shot at East High School in Denver

Two school administrators have been shot at a Denver high school. It happened at East High Wednesday morning during a confrontation after a gun was found on a student during a pat-down late Wednesday morning. One of the administrators was critically injured; the second victim is in stable condition. The suspect, identified as 17-year-old Austin Lyle, remains at large and the gun has not been recovered. Police warn he’s considered armed and dangerous. No school resource officers were on campus at the time of the shootings, but now Denver Public Schools Superintendent Alex Marrero says two armed officers will be posted at East High through the end of the school year. Students at East High had been scheduled to testify about gun safety bills before the Colorado Legislature Wednesday.
