#JusticeForJunior: 19-Year-Old Charged in the Murder of Bronx Teenager

New york police

Police identified one of the suspects as 19-year-old Kevin Alvarez, of the Bronx.

Police arrested the other suspects - Rodriguez, Taverez, Rivera, Fernandez, of the Bronx, and Martinez, of Freeport, NY - at the same house that was packed with people. The teen appeared in court on Monday and pleaded not guilty to the charges against him which include murder, manslaughter and gang assault.

The gang killed the boy in a case of mistaken identity, according to family members.

"A source told PIX11 one gang member was angry because a relative was featured in a sex video and thought Guzman-Feliz was in the video", the report said.

Seven men are being held in connection with the brutal machete murder of Bronx teen Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz.

Police release a video surveillance showing a man in the red T-shirt as part of a group of men who allegedly hacked Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, 15, with a knife to death in the Bronx on June, 2018. National Basketball Association star Carmelo Anthony and his wife, actress Lala Anthony, visited Guzman-Feliz's mother, Leandra Feliz, in her Bronx apartment and stopped by the teen's vigil set up outside the bodega where he was killed. He died after getting slashed in the neck with a machete.




On Twitter, the New York City Patrolman's Benevolent Association said Guzman-Feliz's death "is proof that we can not rest or retreat".

Bronx native Cardi B has even weighed on the incident and called out officers for being quick to "harass" residents, but not help.

Guzman-Feliz can first be seen running into the store looking for protection from his attackers; a worker initially resists helping him but ultimately lets him behind the counter.

Police investigating the crime say that there are likely six people involved in the murder of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz. A GoFundMe page called "Justice for Junior" raised more than $229,000 as of Monday evening for Guzman-Feliz's funeral expenses, surpassing its initial goal of $15,000.

"He was a sweet kid with a very good heart", his mother said.

"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. "Since he was 5 years old, he used to love to play with the police toy cars and always said he wanted to be a detective". The video show I want justice for my son.
