Aussie Party Update: Parking Lot Shooter Arrested

Posted By on Thu, Feb 21, 2013 at 2:15 PM

Tucson Police announced today they have identified and arrested the man who is believed to have fired a gun into the air outside a massive college party at an off-campus apartment complex last month.

Da'wan Grandville Lord, 20, turned himself in today and was booked into the Pima County Jail on one count of discharging a firearm within the city limits, according to a TPD press release. He contacted police on Wednesday, through an attorney, before turning himself in.

Lord was apparently identified by multiple people after TPD put out an 'attempt to identify' notice following the Jan. 26 incident, which occurred at the Stone Avenue Standard apartments and brought a calamitous end to a party that had more than 1,000 attendees.

Dubbed the 'Aussie Party' because of its occurring on Aussie Day and being organized by three University of Arizona exchange students from Australia, the event resulted in Stone Avenue Standard getting red-tagged because of the party's magnitude. It also spawned a You Tube video produced by a student-led startup media company called Blacked Out Media that has garnered more than 50,000 views.

A second video, from the parking lot right before and during the time of the shooting, was also briefly up on You Tube. One still from that video showed a sizable neck tattoo on the person believed to be the shooter, which seems to be the way Lord was tracked down and identified.
