San Jose police said today that a 14-year-old boy arrested last week in the allegedly gang-related attempted murder of another teen in East San Jose will be tried as an adult.
Officers of the Police Department’s gang investigations unit arrested Christian Cotero last Thursday at his San Jose residence on suspicion of attempted murder with a gang enhancement, police spokesman Officer Albert Morales said.
Cotero, described by police as a street gang member, is suspected of confronting and then following a 17-year-old male member of a rival gang for several blocks on Nov. 17 and then stabbing him at least once, police said.
Police were called to the scene of the stabbing at 4:14 p.m. that day. They found the victim outside of a home in the 2000 block of Terilyn Avenue and had him taken to a hospital to be treated for life-threatening injuries.
