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

Six suspected gang members arrested in connection to a Bronx teen's murder appeared in New Jersey court for an extradition hearing on Tuesday.

The NYPD and the Paterson Police Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment on reports of additional arrests made.

Elvin Garcia was arrested in the Bronx and is expected to be arraigned later Tuesday on charges of murder, manslaughter and assault in the death of 15-year-old Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, Bronx District Attorney Darcel Denise Clark announced Tuesday.

Police have arrested six men - Jose Muniz, 21, of Paterson; Jose Taverez, 21, of Bronx, New York; Manuel Rivera, 18, of Bronx; Danel Fernandez, 21, of Bronx; Joniki Martinez, 24, of Freeport, New York; and Santiago Rodriguez, 24, of Bronx - in connection to this murder.

The New York Post reported that the first video shows Guzman-Feliz entering Zesarina Grocery Store and attempting to hide behind the counter.

"He [the gang leader] said they kicked all of them out of the gang", Grullon said.

NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea tweeted that Guzman-Feliz had dreams of being an NYPD detective and that officers will "never give up on him".

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.

That victim survived the incident, but remains in the hospital in critical condition after losing a kidney.

The men are reportedly from the Trinitarios gang and are believed to have killed the boy in "a case of mistaken identity over a sex tape". The teen's parents said they were grateful for the show of support.

His family says the gang has admitted on social media it targeted the wrong person.

A relative of Lesandro (Junior) Guzman-Feliz said he got several mea culpa Facebook messages from men who said they were members of the Trinitarios, a Dominican gang.

Guzman-Feliz's mother, Leandra Feliz, told The New York Times that her son was attacked after stepping outside to lend a friend $5. After Guzman-Feliz goes back outside, where he died, the customer reaches over the blood on the counter to complete a transaction and the worker can be seen making a phone call.

New York Police Commissioner James O'Neill was among the hundreds who attended his wake. "You can put me with my son".
