Orlando Shootout Update: Another Arrest Made in Deadly Incident

According to the police department, another arrest was made on Thursday in connection with a firefight that occurred in an Orlando neighborhood in February and resulted in the death of a 21-year-old man along with six injuries.

Daiquan Noah Robinson, 20, is accused of shooting into an occupied vehicle, carrying a hidden weapon, and attempting first-degree murder with a firearm after his arrest, according to the Orlando Police Department.

It follows the apprehension of Wayne Grant Jr. in February on charges of aggravated violence with a handgun and Shamika Stubbs-Peterson earlier this week on burglary charges related to the case.

The deadly shooting took place on February 28 at approximately 11 p.m. in the vicinity of South Lake Orlando Parkway and Ironwedge Drive. James Jerry Dawn William III, age 21, was one of the seven casualties listed by the department in the shooting; he was declared dead at the site.

Officers were called to the scene for an alleged weapon assault hours earlier, at approximately 3 p.m., according to the police, following a quarrel over a vehicle that was not returned by a mutually agreed-upon date.

“An individual involved in the incident desired prosecution for the alleged assault, however, the suspect was not located,” police stated. “Officers did issue a trespass warning for one of the individuals involved in the alleged disagreement.”

Grant Jr. was the person who was trespassing after he was accused of intimidating a witness at their residence while “looking for a vehicle,” according to an affidavit for an arrest warrant.

Regarding Robinson’s arrest, no further details have been made public, including his role in the event.

Days after the shooting, authorities stated, “We are still in the process of sorting out the roles of those injured and identifying the suspects. We do know there was an exchange of gunfire between two groups and OPD has developed and are working leads in this case. We do believe this is an isolated and targeted incident.”
