Rebecca Michelle Villanueva, of San Jose, was taken into custody as one of the people suspected of taking part in the murder of Daniel Capetillo, 17, who was gunned down on Pacific Avenue that night, police said. The San Jose Police Department’s communications center received an emergency call at 11:33 p.m. on Nov. 30 to the 900 block of Pacific Avenue where they found Capetillo wounded, police said.
