Man linked to killing before K'aun Green shooting

SAN JOSE — A Chicago man has been linked to a fatal shooting in downtown San Jose in late March that preceded a controversial police shooting a few hundred feet away, authorities said.

The man arrested in the homicide, 31-year-old Ronnell Spencer, is currently being held in jail in Cook County, Illinois on unrelated domestic violence and weapons charges, according to San Jose police and jail records.

Authorities in Santa Clara County are working to extradite Spencer back to the Bay Area to face prosecution for the shooting that killed Jacqui Amir Biggins. The 27-year-old Antioch resident died in the early morning hours of March 27 near Fourth and San Carlos streets near San Jose State University.

Spencer was arrested in Chicago on May 15 and is being held without bond, records show. An investigation by San Jose police in the March shooting culminated in an arrest warrant being issued for Spencer a few days after the Chicago arrest. In the ensuing weeks, detectives arranged to visit and interview Spencer in jail there.

But it could be several weeks or longer before Spencer returns to California. That process would be delayed If he challenges extradition, if Cook County prosecutors insist on first trying him for his alleged crimes there, or both.

Police have not disclosed a potential motive for the March 27 shooting, which ended up also serving as a backdrop of a high-profile police shooting nearby, In that incident, an officer wounded 20-year-old K’aun Green, an Oakland resident and former football star at McClymonds High School who was pursuing an NFL career.
