NY teen hacked to death with machete over mistaken identity; 5 arrested

Family calls for boycott of bodega where Bronx teen was fatally stabbed

The crowd at the corner of East 183rd Street and Bathgate Avenue in Belmont, the scene of the vicious murder of 15-year-old Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz, almost squeezes out of the metal barriers police have set up. There is also outrage at workers in the bodega, because surveillance video of the attack shows that they did nothing to help him. Sharing a picture of Junior with her 63.6million followers, she revealed that she had been left traumatized by the killing.'Can't stop thinking about this poor baby boy, and how his family must feel right now!'

Members of the Trinitarios street gangs reportedly apologized to Guzman-Feliz's family and said, "It wasn't supposed to be him".

Law enforcement have arrested multiple gang members in connection to the brutal slaying.

Video of the attack circulated social media and caused an outpouring of sympathy for the victim and empathy for the victim's relatives.

The New York Daily News reports one suspect has been identified as Kevin Alvarez, 19; he's been charged with murder, manslaughter, gang assault and assault. He pleaded not guilty to all charges and was ordered held without bail by Judge Mary Bejarano. "But we are going to ask for the public to allow the judicial process to take its place and move forward in this case in a way that's just and fair for my client".

Jose Muniz, 21, of Paterson, New Jersey, Jose Taverez, 21, of Bronx, New York, Manuel Rivera, 18, of Bronx, New York, Danel Fernandez, 21, of Bronx, New York, Joniki Martinez, 24, of Freeport, New York, and Santiago Rodriguez, 24, of Bronx, New York, were all arrested in Paterson on suspicion of homicide.


The NYPD and the Bronx district attorney said Tuesday that an eighth person is under arrest in connection with the stabbing death of a 15-year-old boy in the Bronx.

His dying words, investigators said, were that he needed some water. He hands the cashier some money and receives his goods in return before following Guzman-Feliz's trail of blood out the door.

He spent a great deal of time with the Explorers program sponsored by the New York Police Department (NYPD) that specializes in mentoring and encouragement from officers.

'His dream in the future was to be a detective, ' she told the New York Post. The police union said it will "carry on in his memory, until the streets are safe" for all New Yorkers. At the time of this writing, the GoFundMe has raised over $161,000.

In an emotional message posted to her Instagram, Lala told fans that visiting Guzman-Feliz's home and family was exactly how the Bronx native wanted to spend her birthday.
