Police ID man they say brandished gun outside at Arapahoe High School


An 18-year-old man was arrested last week on suspicion of pointing a gun at two people outside Arapahoe High School in Centennial on the first day of school, authorities announced Monday.

The incident occurred around noon on Thursday, when the alleged victims — one a student at the school — approached a couple of school resource officers to say that a man had just pulled a gun on them as they were walking near the school.

The suspect was identified by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Monday as Connor Beals. A spokeswoman with the agency said he was not a student at the school.

Authorities described the people who said they were threatened as “visibly shaken and frightened,” and officers quickly located Beals in a vehicle across the street. They searched the vehicle and found a gun inside. Beals was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing and was booked into the Arapahoe County jail.
