The teen’s arraignment is scheduled for Friday morning, according to the district attorney’s office. Officers were called to the 300 block of Keyes Street at about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, San Jose police said. When they arrived, they found a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene and his name has not been released, according to police. The 17-year-old boy’s name has also not been released. Officers obtained a description of a suspect vehicle that was seen fleeing the area after the shooting, police said.
