Seven Suspects Held in Slaying of Bronx Teen

An eighth defendant was also arrested in the Bronx and is due to be arraigned on those same charges later on Tuesday, Clark said.

Police say the Guzman-Feliz's death was the result of a "mistaken identity over a sex tape" when the teen got involved in the deadly dispute with the gang. Surveillance video footage from outside the store released to the public shows the moment the horrific scene unfolds.

Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, 15, was killed by a gang of men outside a bodega store in the Bronx area of NY. He attempted to run to St. Barnabas hospital which was just a block away, collapsed on the sidewalk on the way.

Kevin Alvarez, 19, was arrested Sunday in New York City. He has pleaded not guilty. Law enforcement say the suspects being held may be part of the Dominican gang, Trinitarios.

Yankees star pitcher CC Sabathia and singer Rihanna, among other celebrities, reacted with posts on social media expressing their condolences.

"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. They were identified as: Jose Muniz, 21, of Paterson, Jose Taverez, 21, of the Bronx, Manuel Rivera, 18, of the Bronx, Danel Fernandez, 21, of the Bronx, Joniki Martinez, 24, of Freeport and Santiago Rodriguez, 24, of the Bronx.

"It's good because they have to pay, but I want my son back", Leandra Feliz, the teenager's mother, told CNN affiliate WCBS. "Their families are being threatened, children", she said. "Our school is a family and losing a wonderful 15-year-old boy to senseless violence is hard for us to understand". "This is what I wanted to do for my birthday today", she wrote on Instagram.

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

"They broke my heart - they killed my son, and they killed me at the same time", she said. The rapper Cardi B and New York Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia were among those who spoke out using the hashtag #JusticeforJunior, and former New York Knicks player Carmelo Anthony visited Lesandro's family with his wife, La La. The Daily News reports that members Ritchie Torres, Vanessa Gibson and Rafael Salamanca sent a letter to the Department of Consumer Affairs, stating, "An owner who stands by idly while a 15-year-old is dragged out of his store and murdered in cold blood with a machete is no longer worthy of doing business in NYC".

A GoFundMe page started in his honor has raised more than $200,000 in five days.
