SAN JOSE (BCN) --- A second suspect was arrested Friday in connection with a crime  spree in San Jose last week that left a 22-year-old man dead and included the  shooting of a police officer, San Jose police said.
      
A 15-year-old San Jose boy was arrested in the 5200 block of  Clayton Road in Concord on Friday. Concord police assisted San Jose police  during the arrest.
      
The teenager was wanted for the killing of Rory Park-Pettiford, of  San Jose, the night of Nov. 16, as well as the attempted murder of a San Jose  police officer, police said.
      
Jonathan Wilbanks, 26, of San Jose, was arrested on the night of  the shooting. Police say that Wilbanks and his teen accomplice robbed four  East San Jose businesses and started a shootout with police that injured an  officer.
      
Park-Pettiford was shot during the pair's attempted carjacking in  the parking lot of a 7-Eleven store in the 400 block of Kiely Boulevard in  San Jose that night, according to police.
      
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
      
This morning a public viewing was held for Park-Pettiford in  Campbell.
      
A donation fund to help cover burial costs for the Campbell native  has been set up. Payments may be made via www.roryparkdonations.com.
