5 suspects in custody in connection to teen's slaying at bodega

Surveillance footage shows the bodega manager and an employee gesturing the men to take the fight outside where Junior Guzman-Feliz was stabbed and killed on Wednesday evening. Lesandro was attacked by a group of teenagers and ran into a bodega in an attempt to escape, but the group caught up and dragged him out to the sidewalk, the New York Post reported. "They were grown men and he was only 15". Outside, other male suspects join in beating and then slashing the teen (warning: extremely graphic video) with knives and machetes.

The group fled the scene and Guzman-Feliz ran to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, police said.

According to published reports, on Thursday (Jun 22) Lesandro Guzman-Feliz was stabbed in the neck following a dispute with a group of men.

"Since he was 5 years old, he told me, 'Mommy, I want to be a police, '" Feliz told the New York Post. "I don't know what I'm going to do without him".

But Guzman-Feliz's mother says it is unacceptable that the manager didn't help.

Guzman-Feliz was left bleeding to death and screaming on the corner with his hands raised before running across the street to a hospital, police said.

"They said, 'We had the wrong person, ' " Junior's brother-in-law Derek Grullon told the New York Daily News.

Hashtag #JusticeforJunior has started trending on social media and rapper Cardi B, a Bronx native, also showed support by posting a photo on Instagram. While police continue to search for the five unidentified men responsible for his murder, Junior's family say they've received Facebook messages from men affiliated with the Trinitarios Dominican gang who admitted the teen was the victim of mistaken identity.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
