    The driver of the Cadillac said he and the passengers had been at a party near East Broadway Boulevard and North Euclid Avenue when they heard gunshots.

    The driver was arrested for driving with a suspended license and failing to appear in court for a previous offense.


    A man was arrested for buying alcohol for underage students near Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., on Oct. 29, reports stated.

    At 2:26 p.m., a police officer saw two white males putting beer into a backpack from a Bud Light 30-pack box.

    A third man stood nearby holding a bottle of Jágermeister.

    When the officer confronted the three men, he found that one was older than 21, but the other two were under the legal drinking age.

    The older man said he had come to Tucson to visit one of the younger men. He said he was staying with the students in their dorm room in Coronado Residence Hall.

    The man said he bought the beer for himself and that he did not know that the other two men could not be in possession of the alcohol even if they did not drink any.

    The men told police that they were filling the backpack with the beer because they did not think they could enter their residence hall with the exposed Bud Light box.

    Police cited the older man for providing alcohol to the underage students, and the students were cited for underage possession.

    All three were released on the scene, and the alcohol was placed into property.
