    San Jose police have arrested a 23-year-old woman in connection with the city's 43rd homicide, though they said they are still looking for more suspects in the case.

    In a press release issued Friday, police said they arrested Rebecca Michelle Villanueva of San Jose in connection with the Nov. 30 death of Daniel Capetillo, 17.  Detectives believe the homicide was gang motivated.

    Detectives also believe that Villanueva did not act alone and that her accomplices are still at-large.

    Villanueva was found about 11:30 p.m. in the 900 block of Pacific Avenue. When they got there, they found that Daniel  had been fatally shot.

    Anyone with information should call Detective Sergeant Newton or Detective Vallejo in the San Jose Police Department's Homicide Unit at (408)277-5283. Persons wishing to remain anonymous may call Silicon Valley Crimestoppers at (408)947-STOP(7867) or may visit tipsubmit.com and may be eligible for a cash reward.
