San Jose police on Tuesday arrested a 14-year-old boy on suspicion of murder with a gang enhancement in a March homicide that led to another suspect being killed in a police shootout, police said Wednesday.
The minor, whose name was not released, was captured without incident and booked into the Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall in San Jose, police spokesman Officer Albert Morales said.
The boy's arrest came exactly three months after officers found Daniel Canales, 44, of San Jose, lying wounded in the 2700 block of Murtha Drive in East San Jose on March 11.
Canales was pronounced dead at the scene from at least one bullet wound.
On March 18, a San Jose police officer shot and killed a separate suspect in the Canales murder, Elisa Mejia, 27, of Livermore, in an unincorporated area of Santa Clara County near White and Story roads, Morales said.
The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office is investigating the officer-involved shooting of Mejia, Morales said.
Then on May 21, San Jose homicide unit officers, with a warrant, arrested Faustina Teresa Lopez, 26, of San Jose, on suspicion of murder and a gang enhancement in Canales' death.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
