San Jose police made a second arrest in a high profile deadly crime spree one week after the crimes were commited.
Police said they arrested a 15-year-old boy Friday in Concord. They say he had been on the run since last Friday when he and another man committed four separate robberies, one homicide, a shootout with San Jose police and a stand off in a San Jose neighborhood.
A week later, police continue to investigate the complicated string of crimes that left six separate crime scenes in the span of about 90 minutes last Friday night.
The crimes also included a homicide. A 22-year-old man, Rory Parkpettiford, was shot dead in his car as he was in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven on South Kieley Avenue Friday evening. Police believe he was killed in a carjacking that went bad. Parkpettiford's funeral was scheduled for Saturday, the same day police announced the final suspect had been arrested.
Police located the suspects following one of the robberies and chased them. At the end of the chase, one of the suspects shot a San Jose police officer who suffered a minor injury. A fello
w officer returned fire before the suspects retreated to a nearby neighborhood.
They are not identifying the newly arrested suspect because he is a minor. Police aren't giving any details on what lead them to the teen in the East Bay city of Concord.
The other suspect, Jonathan Wilbanks, 26, was arrested following the initial overnight stand off with police.
Wilbanks was booked into jail for murder, two counts of attempted murder, four counts of robbery, burglary and auto theft.
