Suspects Arrested Over Bronx Boy Stabbing Named

NY police are searching for additional suspects after one man was charged with murder and six others were arrested in connection to the Bronx stabbing death of a 15-year-old boy in what authorities say was an apparent case of mistaken identity.

The Passaic County Prosecutors Office announced Monday afternoon that they arrested six of the suspects on suspicion of murder in Paterson, New Jersey, late Sunday afternoon, NJ.com reported.

One suspect, 19-year-old Kevin Alvarez was seen wearing a dark hoodie and hanging his head as police escorted him from a Bronx criminal court.

Police have asked for help tracking down the five men behind the stabbing death of Guzman-Feliz, who dreamed of becoming a police officer himself. It was there he was dragged outside and slashed several and stabbed several times, the fatal blow to his neck.

One man has been arrested in connection with the brutal stabbing of Bronx teen Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz.

So far, six suspects have been arrested in the senseless slaying. Surveillance video footage from outside the store released to the public shows the moment the horrific scene unfolds. Initial arrests have been made, and more are anticipated. After a brief struggle with the clerk, the teen manages to get behind the counter as three men are seen entering the store and passing the counter before they exit the frame.

Many have spoken out against the bodega, including the teen's family, saying they didn't do enough to prevent the teen from being butchered in the street. As reports state that the attackers mistook him for someone else (they reportedly apologized to the family for Junior's death), there's been an outpouring of support.

"We will not tolerate thugs on the streets of the Bronx, whether it's Trinitarios or any other gang involved in behaviors of this sort", Shea said. Reports claim that he resembled someone in a video featuring the sister of a gang member having sex with another person.

Cardi posted a picture of Junior lying in a hospital bed, and later shared a clip of his 48-year-old mother Leandra Feliz thanking the rapper and others for their heartfelt donations.

A GoFundMe page set up to help the family with funeral costs has now reached almost $240,000.

Hundreds of mourners turned out for a wake on Monday.
