MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A second arrest has been made in the wake of a mass shooting at a Miami restaurant called The Spot.
According to Miami Police, 16-year-old Jamiroquai Young was arrested and charged with one count of accessory after the fact (attempted first degree murder) and 14 counts of accessory after the fact (aggravated battery.)READ MORE: Business Owners In South Florida Say They're Struggling To Get Employees Back To Work
CBS4 Sources said Miami-Dade School Police took Young out of class Tuesday morning at Norland High when they learned Miami Police had probable cause to arrest him. After taking Young into custody, school detectives transported him to Miami PD and turned him over to homicide investigators.
Police said Young did not fire a weapon but is friends with Will Campbell, 17, who was charged Monday in the Sept. 28th shooting which injured 15 people including an 11-year old.
Campbell has been charged with attempted murder and 14 counts of aggravated battery. He is charged as a juvenile, but those charges could be upgraded.
It’s believed Young pointed out the intended target, 15-year-old Travon Simmons, to Campbell while inside the club.
“This all stemmed from a fight at Norland High School, where one of his friends got involved in a fight,” said Miami Police Chief Manuel Orosa. “And when his friends and him arrived at The Spot, they found the other person involved in a fight.”
Simmons remains in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
In court Tuesday morning, the judge ruled Campbell will stay in secure detention instead of being released on home detention with electronic monitoring as requested by his mother. She begged the judge to release her son.
“I just wish he could come home because he’s not used to that place, he’s never been in the system,” said Shareka Campbell.
Prosecutors argued to keep Campbell locked up.
“Regardless of the respondent’s past, this is a serious incident and the state would ask that he stay in secure detention in order to protect the community,” said the prosecutor.
His mother and public defender told the judge Campbell is an intelligent and respectful teen show does well in school at Miami Jackson Senior High and is involved with school sports and activities.READ MORE: ‘Pretty Big Pay Package’: Broward School Board Negotiates $743K Exit Deal For Embattled Supt.

“His mom has told us that he’s never missed a day of school. He’s never been suspended. He gets good grades,” said Public Defender Alanna Holt.
Campbell’s next hearing is scheduled to take place on October 27th. A judge could decide then whether Campbell is tried as an adult.
Campbell is accused of shooting Simmons because he got into a fight with his friend at Norland High, said police. After Simmons was shot, Campbell reportedly fired at the crowd as he ran away, hitting 14 others.
Sources close to the investigation told CBS4 News that Campbell admitted to being at the club but denied any involvement in the shooting.
So far, police have not recovered the weapon or weapons used in the shooting. Monday night police executed several search warrants across South Florida to gather additional evidence in the case.
In addition to the shooting, authorities said the business located at NW 7th Avenue and 64th Street was hit with several violations by nearly every task force involved with the case. Officials said the business was not licensed as a club.
Some of the violations were minor, others were very serious.
Violations cited were for electrical issues, bottles of liquor found behind the bar, distributing alcohol with only a beer and wine license, for not having permits for a jukebox and a pool table, and for buying beer at Presidente Supermarket, which isn’t a legal distributor. The citations came with a recommendation to remove The Spot’s certificate of use.
The manager of the business, 31-year-old Tiffany Johnson, was cited by the Department of Alcohol Beverages and Tobacco.
Johnson’s 13-year-old daughter was among the injured in the shooting.
