Eighth suspect arrested in innocent Bronx teen's murder

Lesandro Guzman-Feliz: Shocking Video Shows NYC Teen Dragged Out of Store & Stabbed to Death While Police Allegedly Watched

Garcia was awaiting arraignment in Bronx Criminal Court Tuesday evening.

Police identified one of the suspects as 19-year-old Kevin Alvarez, of the Bronx. Bodega workers on Friday had told PIX11 they did everything they could to help the teen, but members of the community say surveillance videos show that isn't the case.

A source told WPIX that one gang member was angry because a relative was featured in a sex video and thought Guzman-Feliz was in the video.

As his attackers fled in a light-colored sedan, Lesandro, who was known as "Junior", ran in the direction of St. Barnabas Hospital a block away but collapsed on the pavement as blood ran from his neck.

All six of the men waived their right to a hearing and the judge approved their extradition to New York State. The teen appeared in court on Monday and pleaded not guilty to the charges against him which include murder, manslaughter and gang assault.

Public defender Judy Fallon says that the families of some of the suspects have been threatened following the arrests. The suspects waived extradition in court on Tuesday and so will be extradited to NY to face the same charges as Alvarez, Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark said.

"We will not tolerate thugs on the streets in the Bronx, whether it is Trinitarios or any other gang involved", Shea said.

"No sorry, no apologize is going to bring my son back who was a good sweet kid", said Leandry Feliz, the victim's mother.

Lesandro, affectionately referred to as Junior, was beaten and stabbed to death by a gang of men on Wednesday. His mother, Leandra Feliz, 38, said he loved video games and pizza.

Police said that Guzman-Feliz was also a member of the New York Police Department's Explorers program, which gives young adults an introduction to a career in law enforcement, and dreamed of one day joining the NYPD. Earlier this week, rap star Cardi B who hails from the Bronx, donated $8,000 to the family's GoFundMe and criticized police for their slow response to the violent attack.

Feliz said she was pleased that people were trying to help the police solve her son's killing.

He showed a tattoo that he got on his left hand in honor of his slain child - a picture of his son's face with the letters "R.I.P" written below. Rapper Cardi B, a Bronx native, was among those paying tribute, posting on Instagram about getting justice for the teen. Many others, with some moved to tears, felt it was important to show support for the family. "What piss me off the most is that these BX [sic] cops be harassing the shit outta people then they see a boy bleeding to death and ask what happen?"
