Notorious NYC gang issues apology after allegedly murdering the wrong teen in brutal Bronx stabbing
At least seven suspected gang members arrested in connection with the murder of a 15-year-old boy in the Bronx have been identified by authorities.
News reports say Lesandro was killed in a case of mistaken identity. One video captured him bleeding on the ground as witnesses scrambled to help.
In horrifying CCTV footage Guzman-Feliz, who was known as Junior, could be seen by dragged out of a shop before being hacked to death with the machete. He ran to a hospital at the end of the block, but was pronounced dead at the scene.
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.
Another suspect, Kevin Alvarez, 19, appeared Monday before a judge in NY. He made his first court appearance in New York Monday evening and entered a plea of not guilty.
Junior was then attacked by five men believed to be part of the Dominican gang Trinitarios and stabbed the teen several times including in the neck.
"What happened to this young man should have never happened so we're going to take this walk and we're going to walk for Junior", said community advocate Tony Herbert.
Lesandro's mother, Leandra Feliz, wore a white T-shirt adorned with her son's face and was met with cheers of "Junior!"
A relative of the slain teen said he's received several mea culpa messages from gang members via Facebook apologizing for the brutal killing. "It's good because they have to pay but I want my son back".
The attackers apparently mistook him for a man in a sex tape that was posted online.
Cardi B, who is from the Bronx, donated six thousand dollars under her real name Belcalis Almanzar; she also shared a post on Instagram saying: "The Bronx streets are ruthless".
Battered and bloody from the attack, Guzman-Feliz slumps over the counter, after which the cashier appears to shoo him, refusing to come to his aid.
He wrote on the page: "Hey everyone I opened up a gofundme account for my brother in law and he's family due to financial difficulties at this moment since he's death was so sudden and tragic".
