Adonis Muldrow of San Jose was arraigned Tuesday for charges of murder, assaulting a police officer with a gun, attempting to murder a police officer, four counts of second-degree robbery, and buying or receiving a stolen car, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office.

Muldrow was arrested on Friday in the 5200 block of Clayton Avenue in Concord and booked in Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall.

He was wanted on suspicion of killing Rory Park-Pettiford and the attempted murder of a San Jose police officer in a shootout with police that occurred on Nov. 16.

Police say that Wilbanks and Muldrow robbed four East San Jose businesses and started a shootout with police that injured an officer.

Park-Pettiford was shot during an 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.

I'm glad this person is being treated as an adult.

I'm sad he's so young. Wish I could have been in court today, but I hear it was a media circus. Sadder for the 22-year-old Campbell kid that got killed in the middle of this crime spree. Wonder what a 15-year-old was doing with a kid 11 years older when the crime occurred. How did they become friends? Does he bear any responsibility for this "baby" doing what he did Nov. 16?

Jonathan Dawson Wilbanks is 11 years older than Adonis Muldrow.
