Lesandro Guzman-Feliz

Hundreds attended the funeral of Bronx teenager Lesandro Guzman-Feliz who was dragged out of a bodega by gang members and stabbed to death on June 20.

Police arrested an eighth suspect in Lesandro's murder on Tuesday. Elvin Garcia was seen making the perp walk from the 48th Precinct to court on Wednesday morning.

Garcia, 23, is charged with murder along with six other suspects from The Bronx and New Jersey. Police apprehended one suspect in his native Dominican Republic where he fled after Lesandro's death.

Graphic video of the attack caused an uproar when it went viral on social media last week. The video shows 5 gang members dragging the 15-year-old out of the bodega, then slashing and stabbing him as he fought for his life.

Lesandro was left for dead but he struggle to his feet and ran towards a nearby hospital. He collapsed on the sidewalk and died about a block from his home.

Lesandro was the innocent victim of a mistaken identity. The thugs believed he was a rival gang member who filmed a SnapChat video of himself having sex with the little sister of one of the gang members.

Several of the suspects apologized to Lesandro's mother.

Six of the suspects appeared in a New Jersey courtroom on Tuesday. Only one of them spoke English. The rest of the gang members required Spanish translators.

The gang members complained that their families were being threatened.

"Social media has been very active about this case," said public defender Judith Fallon, according to the NY Post.

"Their families are being threatened, children," she told the judge, as the suspects stared at the floor.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio rushed back from the Mexican border to get camera time in front of the funeral home.

Mourners yelled at the mayor in English and Spanish, criticizing him for not contacting Lesandro's mother for days. The mayor was busy at the border protesting ICE agents separating immigrant families.

Some social media users criticized former President Obama for shipping MS-13 "unaccompanied minor" gang members to New York and New Jersey. Georgia refused to accept them.

Lesandro's family told the crowd to boycott the bodega when, or if it ever reopens. Witnesses say the bodega owners did nothing to intervene and instead they told the gang members to take the violence outside.

The bodega remains closed while police investigate the crime scene.

A small memorial for the slain teen outside the store grew to a sea of candles and flowers by Tuesday night.

A GoFundMe account has raised $256,000 for the teen's funeral expenses.

Bronx rapper Cardi B donated $8,000 to the family under her government name Belcalis Almanzar.

    The gang members complained their family was being threatened....are they f'ing serious

    They killled a innocent boy and they have the nerve to complain!

    AND HOW THEY DONT KNOW ENGLISH YET

  • pecancandy

    So I killer is pressed over death threats.......ain’t that rich.

  • DETROITTOATL

    This is beyond senseless and there is no damn reason why that child should not be here with his Mom. Those guys were some cowards and fawking punks.

  • Yoni7

    I've been obsessed with this on IG. It's sad as fukk! I hate this for his family. I even watched a vid where some crackhead lookin chick went to the lil girl's house and got with her. It's sad.

  • DETROITTOATL

    I hope they get there azzes beat everyday while in jail. I have 3 sons and I would be devastated if something happened to any of them.

  • Yoni7

    .....as pie.

  • hi-liter

    Even if they woulda got the right boy, they all was still gonna be in the same situation, they was gonna kill him. Still woulda been tragic.

    It’s a shame how people will stand around and let people be jumped on, or killed like that boy was. If they was scared to say something at the time, they coulda quietly called the police.

  • Reina1718

    So where is the boy who took the video & the girl in the video?

  • Yoni7

    Alive. The girl got roughed up by a crackhead at her doorstep.

  • MzJamaica

    I don't have kids but if this is the world we are living in, it gives me great concern. There's no regards for the human life! Is prison becoming so comfortable that you would rather risk your freedom? SMH.. All sort of sadness here

  • Reina1718

    Wow get out!

  • Cali

    Sandra, you can Stop showing those images now. They are too sad and enrages me.

  • Yoni7

    *unpopular comment here*
    THE ONLY REASON I'm glad it was caught on tape was because it gave a clear pic of the murderers and those punk ass store owners who put him out even when he came BACK for help. I can't with the other vid I saw after he made it to the hospital.

  • Yoni7

    It's on IG. She didn't beat her up beat her up, but she tried.

  • SpillyNillie

    My heart literally aches for Lesandro's mother! I'm tearing up now. My son is my one and only child! I can't imagine the grief...Lord Jesus...

  • Malai

    Well I HOPE EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM get tore a new asshole and throat in prison!! Lock away that scum and throw away the key!! Bunch of losers!!!! #RIPBABYBOY

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This ^^^^ ..... cause I can not ... summed it right on up for me !!

  • dru and neil

    The show of love and support for this innocent kid and his family is so heartwarming. I still cannot look at any pictures of his last moments, without a rush of emotion coming over me as well. How dare they touch this child! I watched their court appearance and none of those cowards could look anyone in the eyes! And they have the incredible nerve to complain of death threats? Really?!

  • joel adams

    I haven't been to a bodega in like...9 yrs

  • dru and neil

    Mine too. One and only child, and if anyone were to take him....I just don't think I could breathe.

  • WHYJESUSWHY

    trust me they know English, but feel like they will garner sympathy or are trying to play dumb. I have some family members who do that crap and I just look at them and spout curse words...

  • dru and neil

    I'm sorry but is a bodega just a liquor store or something.

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    this is so sad :( wasted that little boys life and for what?

  • SpillyNillie

    WAIT!

    People stood around and watch them do this to this poor boy?!!?!?!?
    (I couldn't/didn't watch any of the videos - I'm going off the pic above)

  • Rayne

    8 ppl to hurt that one lil boy. Smfh

  • Coy little wink

    Ironically these demons can't withstand the consequences of their brutality...

  • Yoni7

    YES!

  • cherrypie

    that's what I heard too. That many adults were around and not one person helped him smh

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Another video shows after the stabbing when Lesandro ran back inside the store, the owner told him to get out.

  • cherrypie

    right! im from the midwest - we have liquor stores and convenient stores

  • Yoni7

    Because some lil girl opened HER legs and another boy (who DOES look like him) sent a video.

  • Fred G sanford

    You best believe trump is gonna use this for ammunition

  • SpillyNillie

    You have got to be kidding me! This makes it all the more worse and unacceptable!!!

  • MissHarlem

    Off topic but on: Wishful thinking but it would be nice if all our black children (brown too) gets this same support. I hope the 17 yr old black girl in Brooklyn gets justice and gets this same support but she won't. The list is endless this month alone. I'm glad he got his spotlight because it was senseless. Just bittersweet to me for many reasons and those living here will understand my sentiment. Community should be exactly that and speak out against all gangs. Same gang just beat up and stab up another on Bronx river parkway Monday. He survived but in critical.

  • Yoni7

    I've seen it all. Trust me. Even him in the casket.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    "AND HOW THEY DONT KNOW ENGLISH YET"

    Because they just arrived in this country from south of the border.

  • SpillyNillie

    Sad times we live in...this is horrible

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Ain't shyt .... I swear ...

  • Anunnaki

    Da fck. U kidding right, u gotta be, i hate this story this baby he looks like my son. I cant watch it. i cant do it..i try not to even stop and read about it, i cant handle this chyt..

  • Anunnaki

    These evil ass ughhhh, just hang them all, fck it

  • joel adams

    Kind of. They sell EVERYTHING. Typically, the owner lives above the store

  • cherrypie

    It's been a really long time since a case like this has affected me so much. i have an affinity for young men because I have two son's around the same age who are mixed with Italian and could easily pass for junior. This whole situation should have never happened. If only the young girl never had sex, if only the kid never posted that sex video, junior would still be alive and his family would not have to go through the most horrific pain possible. My heart goes out to his mother and family. I actually said a prayer not only for Junior and his family but also his killers. #dontjudgeme . Its sad that one action changed the shape of almost 10 lives and of their families too in just a blink of an eye.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I refuse to have children. There is no way that i'm bringing a person in this fvked up world to mix around with yall kids and their devil inside asses. Nope. Not me.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Got the nerve to play some kind of victim .... ain't shyt ... Scum ! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif

  • cherrypie

    Yeah, not only did they not step in but sadly when junior was bleeding to death and tried to return to the store for help those bastards locked him out. Like who does that? And that Bodega is still standing. SMH

  • Anunnaki

    Got dammit, im out...til another post, I CANNOT

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I saw that ugly gordita and all 25788521 of her fat rolls and it broke my heart even more. That is why that little boy lost his life? Some insecure jiggly easy whore? Smfh

  • Yoni7

    What 17 year old girl? What happened? I hope these bastards get charged with the other stabbing, even if the real stabbers get caught. Fukk'em!

  • cherrypie

    Lastly i am glad their families are threatened....Wait what???? Why threaten their families??? Their families had nothing to do with this.

  • Scorpio

    I agree, we don't need to keep seeing the images. its really sad to know he probably didn't know why they were attacking him, but knowing he was going to die. I will not watch the video, because I think our society is becoming to desensitized to images like these.

  • Yoni7

    They closed it down, permanently. I think they will go around the corner and open another one under a different name. Leeching off the community.

  • iWasteTime

    And they shut that damn store down, as they should have.
    Being scared is one thing but after the threat was gone from the store they did absolutely nothing! ... smh

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    they gonna be in a gang in jail too !! a gangbang .. good riddance !

  • cherrypie

    Didn't know they shut it down. I'm glad. All they had to do was help him this child but didnt. He died all alone.

  • Yoni7

    .......that he had NOTHING to do with. I heard she named Jr so HER bf wouldn't get in trouble. Said she knew him from an Explorer's program they were in together.

  • iWasteTime

    I stopped following industryonblast cause of that photo. I wasn't ready

  • Roxie Moxie

    See? Eradicate them. End of story. They do nothing to contribute to society. 6 waste of spaces right there.

  • Yoni7

    Bukkake lookin' punks!

  • cherrypie

    Right Yoni! Thats how the game is played smh

  • Solstice

    I can’t! ?? My son will be 20 in 3 days. I thank God he and my 14 y/o daughter are still with me. I pray for our youth!! Especially our young boys.…these times are truly evil. I cannot/will not watch the video sis. My soul cannot take it! Fr…?

  • Sdot33

    so sad...God bless his soul

  • iWasteTime

    Yeah they petitioned for it. After the video of him coming back in and they telling him to get out surfaced. That baby went the 2 blocks to the hospital and died outside

  • Solstice

    I’m not sure I’d make it! For real ?

  • Yoni7

    Who YOU tellin'. I have a 10 month old grand-SUN. And he's just that.......my SUN!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    So she put a target on his back it wasnt a mistaken identity she led them to him wowwwwwwwwww oooooooh they need to charge that pendeja cerda with solicitation to commit murder idgaf!!!!!!

  • Yoni7

    And the "friend" who lured him down to the bodega under the guise of "Loan me $5."

  • MissHarlem

    She was shot no leads no nothing. Senior hs student athlete. Mom been asking for justice since june 2 or so. There's more of our girls going missing or getting killed. This death literally trumped all which was fckd up. However I know why and out of respect for this poor boy I will leave it alone. It just angers me that we rally for this one but go mute for ours. Generally speaking of course.

  • Coy little wink

    ?..was that surveillance or cell footage?

  • Solstice

    Wow ? I never heard about this! Smh…unbelievable

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Ahhh, thanks for that. I honestly never knew what a bodega was/is.

  • cherrypie

    It's amazing that in the course of one week we lost Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, Antwon Rose, and XXXTenacion along with countless other young men and women who remain nameless. So much sadness in the world. God help US!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Goes to show you how far folks will go when they hate you. And junior got on his merry way so that he could help a "friend". My heart...

  • Yoni7

    BOTH! They both gave clear pics of the perps AND the cars they got away in. For THAT, I'm grateful because they could have still been walking the streets.

  • NeverSurprised

    Breaking News:

    JUSTICE KENNEDY RETIRING FROM SUPREME COURT!!!!!!!

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.nytimes.com/2018/06/27/us/politics/anthony-kennedy-retire-supreme-court.amp.html

    This is Yuuuuge!!!! Kennedy was the most gay-friendly member of the court. Now a second conservative justice will be appointed by President Trump. I predict a solid rollback of all the gay- and trans-friendly legislation (not a change in the right to marry, just all of the other nonsense - the bakers, the florists, etc). I also predict WOMEN WILL ACTUALLY GET OUR RIGHT TO PRIVACY BACK!!!!!! Giving us the right to once again use public facilities in peace, absent the encroachment of men in dresses.

    This will be a monumental detour from the gay/trans path blazed by Obama. So exciting!!!

  • cherrypie

    Was he the only child? No sisters or brothers?

  • MissHarlem

    It's crazy because it's out there but you have to really research which is ridiculous. BET used to have a show called find our missing. Years back but it gave me a different perspective as to why we don't even look, desensitized etc

  • Yoni7

    He had a sister, for sure. Whether he was the only boy or youngest, IDK.

  • Yoni7

    SO FUKKED UP!

  • Roxie Moxie

    Same! I have a 4 year old son and the only child. I already told my parents, his grandparents and the like that if ANYTHING happens to him, I WILL go to jail because I'm taking whomever with me. Sounds selfish, but I like and prefer quick Karma.

  • MsPam

    Why Trump May put someone worse than him. But go ahead and celebrate!????

  • MissHarlem

    Very. Don't get me wrong community is doing right but that should be across the board. Then everytime I turn around a celebrity etc getting a photo op like there's not hundreds of grieving moms they can support on the low.

  • Ms. Jackson

    They're getting death threats? HA! but they wasn't scared when they knifed that child! And chopping him repeatedly with a machete? Come on son! Don't be scared... Take YOUR shanking and ass blown out like a MAN! lil BITCH

    Last week had my whole body drained... just so sad and I don't watch the news because it is draining but I still see the news clips and stuff on social media so its really no escaping it.. I feel so bad for the families I cant imagine what they feeling :(

  • Roxie Moxie

    See....I would be put out as President as SOON as I got in office. smh I would make them disappear so fast w/o evidence, they'll be calling these muhf*ckas Jimmy Hoffa.

  • vicci

    They probably scared of gangs and gang retaliation. Blk ppl too won't even snitch. True fear.

  • PhillyFacts

    Omg are you serious (I haven’t watched any videos too sad)...it takes a special kinda evil not to help an injured person let alone a child...?

  • Yoni7

    Right. Lala showed up to this. *clap clap bravo* but......

  • dru and neil

    Thanks?

  • Coy little wink

    These stories sicken me...what is wrong with people???? I stopped watching the news but you can't help but to run into these stories online...

  • NeverSurprised

    So very sorry for this young man's family.?

  • cherrypie

    Sadly, I think you are right. I've never witnessed a violent situation but I would like to believe that I would at least try to help somehow and I'm a woman. I just think its so sad that no one tried to help this child. Put pressure on the wound something besides locking him out. He bled to death all alone.

  • MissHarlem

    ??

  • Yoni7

    Girl last week I was UP til like 2 watching this. Then I told my daughter about it and she cried her eyes out. She has a 10 month old SUN. Only child. They're my only everything. I can't imagine.

  • Tiff J

    I hope his family takes what is left over of the GoFundMe money and moves to a "better" area. Especially if they have other young children in their family.

  • cherrypie

    I feel the same way. I used to watch the news every night growing up now I just can't its absolutely depressing and hard to watch. And there really is no getting pass it if your anywhere online.

  • dru and neil

    I'm in Texas, I've heard of a bodega, never been in one, but assumed it was like a convenience store.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The owner gave an interview saying he thought Lesandro was a bad kid. He said he tried to help Lesandro and give him water, but the store video contradicts him.

  • candy

    Right?! The irony

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    I told my family the same thing.... ill even drive myself to the police station and turn around so they can cuff me.. ill do my bid for my baby boy

  • Yoni7

    I don't watch the news/TV PERIOD! I work 7 days a week. I was kicked off a jury panel JUST YESTERDAY because I honestly think the judge caught me glaring at the defendant. Child rape case. BOTH kids under the age of 13.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    I was thinking that too... because that community is not safe I couldnt walk them streets anymore knowing my baby boy was murdered there

  • Ni Ni

    As old as they are and don't speak English...hogwash!

  • cherrypie

    This is a high profile case but just think about the countless other cases of murders that don't make national news. We had a case of two boys, 15 and 16 boys murdered in an abandoned house just Monday. What are world we live in. SMH

  • dru and neil

    I'm not sure why you are jumping up and down over use of a public bathroom when there's so much more at stake.

  • Bee jaay Cee

    People please take a First Aid/CPR class. I have been an instructor for almost 20 years. Had someone called 911, calmed him down, and applied pressure to his wounds, he might have had a chance of survival. The first instinct is to panic, but if you have the knowledge you are more likely to assist and/or get help for the victim asap.

  • Solstice

    Satan is very busy…

  • Ni Ni

    Ditto!

  • NuBeauty

    And he should if he really trying to prove a point. I'm sorry but I'm not saying everything this man does/say is right....But Trump sometime have points on the things he say. People have written him off so they really don't hear what he is saying or doing. If the individuals are not documented....Yes, send their a55es back to wherever they came from because this right here hurts. As a Mother....this is not the death you picture for your kids. F8ck every last individual who did this to that young man. May their a55es get ripped apart.

  • dru and neil

    I agree, if Ruth Bader Ginsberg kicks then bucket while Trump is in office may as well throw the whole SCOTUS away.

  • Ni Ni

    Right, i used to watch news like a tv show. I'm burned out now its depressing

  • Solstice

    Nope. Slash and dash their asses with machetes like they did this 15 y/o boy. ???

  • Rayne

    I bet they lieing. They just prolonging their case. You still going to jail!

  • Sid

    Wait a damn minute. They killed this boy and it was a mistaken identity? Omg I cAnt even stomach this.

  • Chocolate Bliss

    This crew right here. These killers attacked a 14 yr old and stabbed him up too. They also beat him with bricks and pipes. He's in critical condition. There's a video of it also. Please use the prayer that you did for the killers on the 14 yr old because he needs it. Let those demons rot because their souls are already gone.

  • Chocolate Bliss

    Because they are punks! Most gang members wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight. They get courage from having more people with them and ganging up on them.

  • Yoni7

    Some man got up there and was like "UH, HE'S GUILTY! Just by me looking at him!".
    Judge: You're excused.

    LMAO

  • cherrypie

    Which means he's a liar and tried to save face. Thank goodness for the video. Aint no lying about that.

  • hi-liter

    Since those dirty ass store owners told the boy to get out when he ran back into the store, the community to Protest and have them to close that shat down. The community shouldn't spend another dime at that place since they want to act like that.

  • cherrypie

    I couldnt watch that video either. I'm very sensitive. Who would want to have that on their spirit?

  • Renee26

    You do realize that the DR is a US territory right ? ... Nothing I've read said they were illegal immigrants

  • NeverSurprised

    The store owners refused to help him and kicked him out. They didnt even try to save him.

  • Yoni7

    It's closed. They will probably open another one around the corner under a different name.

  • hi-liter

    But WHO was gonna do the CPR? The store people dirty azz told the boy to get out.

  • pecancandy

    Exactly

  • Renee26

    Corner store.... Usually in the hood...and everything is marked up costing the poor people without transportation ridiculous prices

  • NuBeauty

    Yes, I know that DR is US territory but didn't know that's where these piece of sh*t were from. I cant read much into this story, I have a teenage son and my feelings will get to caught up. I personally feel "AN EYE FOR AN EYE" in this case. Line their a55es up....have his family come and stab their a55es....and let them die in pain

  • Trace da Ace

    nope...this story broke me down so bad the other day....see yall next post.

  • Rayne

    Here y’all! I found this on the tube. Didn’t know this but if info. Smfh. They need to charge the girl too! Wow ?

    I said this down yonder.

  • Roxie Moxie

    I'm assuming these were Arab store owners? If so, we already know they don't like black folk or any other person whose not of their own. I can't stand them. I had one store owner be MAD disrespectful to black customers and I started noticing a pattern....but when a white person came, these sand niggas was all smiles an shit. So, I kindly cursed his ass out and said the next time I come in here and see you disrespecting the very people who help you drive that BMW in the lot, I'm calling the jakes to let em know you selling looseys out ya store.

    Guess what?

    That nigga flying straighter than an aroused man looking at the old Nia Long. LOL

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    The bodega is closed permanently but we all know they will probably open up another store somewhere else...they all look pathetic up top but Im not buying that most of them dont speak english. My ex was Dominican from the Bronx and he would turn that shit on and off like a light when he aint wanna hear nothing I said lol...I hope these boys get life... they will have to be in isolation for the rest of their lives in jail... As far as the fast azz lil smut who started it she needs her azz beat and a couple of her teeth removed...

  • Roxie Moxie

    Hahaha! He knew that was an already "guilty" glare. lol

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    They need to charge her âss with adult charges. She got all of that mess started, by getting everybody eles involved and lying her áss off.

    And I've never been the "an eye for an eye" type person, but I feel absolutely no sympathy for their families. Now they're getting death threats for k?llong that innocent child. GOOD!!! I bet those same family members supported or turned a blind eye to their gâng lifestyle.

    It's no fun when the rabbit has the g?n, now is it? I bet they don't feel so tough now.

  • Roxie Moxie

    I bet you say THESE words/sentences, they gonna start speaking English QUICK:

    -ICE

  • Renee26

    Idk if all of them are from there but 1 did flee there and was brought right back to NJ

    The point is that Trump can't make a connection between brown skin people and his wall using this particular case... There's plenty of domestic criminals so he has no valid excuse for wanting that wall period

    I'm with you as far as their deserved punishment 100%

    LMAO I would have tried to pretend so I could be on the jury... But my face probably would have told on me too

  • Yoni7

    #blackgirlmagicvibes I SWEAR that judge called a sidebar out of the blue. Probably had been watching me, watching dude. I sweatergawd! He came back like "We're gonna go ahead and excuse juror #(insert my number here).....Ms. Yo..." before he could finish "Yoni", I had my shit and was waiting for the baliff to escort me out. NO LIE!

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Yep! All because of her lies.

  • Yoni7

    I TRIED! I PROMISE I DID! I was like this fukka ain't about to just register as a sex offender on MY watch. I'm going to make sure he's GUILTY! THEY gone have to put me out. And lo and behold.....they excused my ass right on off.

    May this young man Rest In Peace... our prayers are with you and your family, angel ? ??

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    She sure did and look what happened to that poor child. He didn't even know why they were attacking him and they need to pull a "Do The Right Thing" move and tear that store down. Her lies caused that boys horrific death.

    People are constantly given the opportunity to do what's right, for someone in need, but most choose to turn their backs when it matters most. They could have saved that child's life but they chose not to. Now look. I bet they never thought in a million years that the backlash, for that child's death, would be so swift and brutal. But they ALLL deserve what they're getting. The girl, the k?llers families, the k?llers, and the stores owners. They all deserve the backlash because they all played a part in his m?rder.

  • Rico768

    I do not generally support the death penalty but kill them all.....slow and on camera
    publicly whip and scar the store owners

    At least put pressure on the wound... even if not for taking a class... has anyone not seen criminal minds, law and order, those hospital shows!! If I learned anything from these shows it’s to apply pressure to a bleeding wound and not pull the knife out of a stab wound lol

  • TheyDontHearMeTho

    Thats what I’m saying. How is it that these videos go straight to social media before the police station?! Who’s uploading security camera footage of a child being stabbed to death?! I’m telling yal there’s a deeper reason behind this. Desensitizing the general population to violence, death, and of course sex—all geared toward the young and impressionable.

  • Meme

    The really tragic sad thing is after he was stabbed he went back to the shop to ask for help and nobody helped him in fact they told him to get out...that is when he started to run towards the hospital...who knows if they had let him sit in the shop called an ambulance and stemmed the blood it may have saved him. The shop keeper has known him since he was a baby. Every time i hear or see more of this story my heart just breaks. His poor mum. May he rest in eternal peace ??

  • NeverSurprised

    This is not some small neighborhood street gang.The Trinitarios are an INTERNATIONAL DRUG GANG operating in the DR, the US and Spain.

    In 2011, 50 members of the Bronx Trinitarios Gang (BTG) were charged with racketeering, narcotics and firearms offenses. BTG allegedly operated as a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO), and 41 defendants were charged with racketeering conspiracy, related to their participation in this criminal organization, which engaged in narcotics trafficking, murder and attempted murder.

    These charges stem from an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the New York City Police Department (NYPD), the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS).

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinitario

    This is the SAME activity that we see with so many of the drug cartels/gangs like MS-13 that have infiltrated our border and are PAYING the fares for some of the illegals from El Salvador to come to the US ( how else are these "impoverished" families able to afford to come here all the way from Central America?)

    They bring to our shores the kind of wanton, heartless violence that was visited upon this innocent young man. The level of depravity is the SAME as that which we have seen from MS 13. For the safety of our own children, we MUST keep these people out of our country.

    Someone did apply pressure to his wound. It was a woman that did this. He just bled out. I'm willing to bet he bled out from carotid or jugular veins or arteries. It depends on how deep the slashes were. So sad and senseless.

  • kennedy220

    nah..kiling is the easy way out....torture is better..SAW movie torture..they need to sit and feel the pain with no pain relievers...we need to know that they feel it..

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    "Lesandro’s family told the crowd to boycott the bodega when, or if it ever reopens." translation, they'll transfer the store into another family members name, business as usual.
    1. Why is the officer wearing a glove, yet touching his face?
    2. This is very sad
    3. "Cardi B donated $8,000 to the family under her government name Belcalis Almanzar.Respect to Cardi", that was genuine.
    4. This write up is too much.
    5. They all look guilty

    As for the store owners they are coward muthaphuckers and need to be sent back to their country with the guilty suspects. I hope that stire never reopens...smdh #ripjunior

  • SumthinSweeter

    yes so true. it was a possibility that he could have survived if anyone, anybody would have started First Aid with #1 applying pressure to his stab wounds. By him running his heart and blood pressure caused him to bleed out even more. I literally cannot watch or read about this without tearing up every time.

  • Renee26

    Not funny. How do you come to look like such losers at such young ages? They looked burnt out, dumb and evil. No way would I guess their correct ages. I thought people immigrate to access opportunities and education. Obviously not all.

  • ER

    RIP to this beautiful angel!! I see the Trump regurgitater herself is spewing his propaganda and bullshit! It’s amazing how an immigrant herself can write about MS 13 like this has anything to with what happened to this young man. Did you read anything about this situation? None of these gang members are a part of Ms13 at all. Most are from Dominican Republic a simply geography lesson would help you understand why your little Trump propaganda thrown in your article made no damn sense and was unnecessary! I hope your green card is good because your GOD Trump doesn’t want any black nor brown immigrants in these United Snakes of Amerikkka. I’m reference to this case if they don’t get the legal chair I hope they get the behind bars chair everyone of them deserve it!

  • Marlika

    I pray Junior can rest in peace now. God has his arms around him. ????

    Phuck these bitch ass punk ass ugly ass ignorants ass gang bangers and their families. They all need to die the same way. ?????

    They way that slaughtered that young boy was as if their life depended on it. So double phuck the gang leaders as well.
    The one who really went in and stabbed him like 9 times all over in his torso I want to die painful death first. Then the one who dragged him out he store, then the one who stabbed him in the neck with the machete. In that order lease devils. Then kill the rest off along with their family’s, the get away drivers, mofos that handed him over to the gang and the bystanders who sat back and did nothing but video the shi*t!???????????

  • Marlika

    The mother said to keep showing the video so the world can see what they did to her son. Similar to Emmite T mother wanting him to have an open casket.?

  • Marlika

    I was thinking that too. But one of the assholes took one last jab with the machete right to his neck and punctured the main artery. I seen a video of when he callasped on some stairs a block away and he was drenched in blood. It was pouring out of him. Someone took a picture of his neck in the hospital and the gash was the size of a golf ball. ?????

  • SumthinSweeter

    OMG & Jesus!!! Usually I can handle things like that & would be curious to see it but no, not in this case.

  • Rico768

    You do not want to watch it. My heart is troubled after seeing him helplessly being stabbed over and over by different people in multiple places.
    Does not seen normal to watch a person being killed. My prayers are with that family and his spirit

    And the man they wanted looked Nothing like the kid

  • BadAss Will

Yet they let non citizens or barely citizens, kinda aliens maybe slide in and chop up people and they dont even care.

    "Feliz" was the right last name because he was so beautifully immature, like 15 yr old boys are supposed to be. i loved him and dd even know him. my twin nephews will be 15 next month and i would absolutely go insane if........and wow, they def did not have to much blood to drain during the autopsy. i think about this too much. i know. and the grieving doesnt stop now. this will hurt forever.

  • esh

    i think that spot is cursed and no one will patronize. did you see today how some of the candles all of a sudden toppled over? now if they go to another area they might be able to continue. his blood is probably still on the floor and counter.

  • esh

    i heard a report that a major artery was severed. there was no hope anyway for this angel. he def would have bled out regardless. might have taken longer but......

  • esh

    its now coming out that the girl was behind it all. she dd want her bf to get in trouble for posting the video so she picked someone who looked like him to take rap. she was in the police program with junior and he happen to look like her bf. so she lied and called junior to say she needed $5 for the train and to meet her at the bodega where her brother and his gang got him.

    What a nightmare situation to be in for the store owner too you have non English speaking people with machetes slicing people and the police, Ice and, the fbi been looking the other direction for years because that behavior has become perfectly acceptable due to who their victims are and the community they are terrorizing.

  • Pebbles

    Yup!

    I watched that video but I couldn’t watch the video of the young man being killed .. the still images of him being pulled out the store was enough to disturb my soul.

    To watch someone’s murder on video was to much for me

    the hospital the adrenaline made the blood pump out faster. Knowing that he is going straight to heaven is the only comfort anyone can gain, I'm just so sad for his mum

    They just killed a kid and now they are worried about children in their family getting death threats. No pity over here!

    He doesn't even want the ones that were here before him here.

  • Reina1718

    I seen a few videos & heard older guys in the neighborhood saying he was a trouble maker & he & a group of other kids robbed & pulled out machetes the nite b4 in front of the same store...they are saying it has nothing to do with that girl....not agreeing with it but jus what the streets saying

  • Dowoop

    Unfortunately, seeing as how the people walking by and videoing it had no regard for life they will probably still support this store.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Oh wow didn’t know she called and the didn’t arrest her!!! Smh.

  • Dowoop

    Trust me you don't want to see it. The fact that there was people who could have helped him and didn't made it so much worse.

    If I could like this more than once I would. I feel no pity for their family members.

  • Dowoop

    That part was so sad

  • Dowoop

    But if those same people broke in and robbed them they wouldn't be afraid to snitch on them then! They just didn't care about this boy. If you afraid you be hiding behind the damn counter or in a back room not shooing them out the store.

  • Dowoop

    So where is that video?

    I hope he lives in that nightmare forever.

    Most likely they come as children or in immigrant non English speaking household. Spanish is one of the top lingo here. There ‘are not’ required to learn engilsh. Weird, I know. I was required to learn English since creole and French aren’t spoken here. They won’t be deported if they are under 18 and still cover under DREAM act. Again, I know. Just sad

  • 90’sBawdy

    That is an incorrect statement, DACA cannot/will not protect them. All DACA benefits are stripped once arrested, even without a conviction. If they are in fact illegal, they’ll be prosecuted, jailed, and then deported.

    There is a need for a bodega... not by this owner/operator!

    This store should be boycotted until the owner can't afford to stay open! Let someone else buy the store for dirt cheap and reopen the bodega under a diff name!

    Their parents probably did, but your children's peers sometimes have more influence than you do as a parent. Immigrants are working 2 sometimes 3 jobs and are often absent in the home. These MFs don't represent ever immigrant either. Just like the crimes of 1 Black man shouldn't speak for all Black people.

  • Riverton Tenant

    No... Just speak on what you heard. For example, the gang made a mistake and said sorry. Or maybe the Gang parents called and said sorry. Or maybe, the real guy who they were looking for setup this 15 year old. Or the Girl, who was protecting the real guy, made the mistake. Just tell us the different stories. No names!

  • Riverton Tenant

    Right!

  • Riverton Tenant

    True. However, If you know that your next door neighbor is in a gang or you know there are gangs in your block, don't wait for ICE, the Mayor, Obama, or anyone. Snitch on that a$$ before they do something stupid. These guys did not come from the border a month ago and join a gang. SOMEBODY put them on (months and years ago) and they a$$ should be deported. Now #45 really not going to return those kids. They are going to be separated all across America (as they planned).

  • Riverton Tenant

    WOW!!!?!!!

  • Riverton Tenant

    Right!

  • Riverton Tenant

    This is why we have big brothers, uncles, cousins, and other members of the family who should have called the police and report on these gangs (English speaking or not). Otherwise, those who are truly working parents, young adults, and those who love their culture and USA are being deported. The real gangs are here to stay because no one wants to call them out or snitch.

  • Riverton Tenant

    Right! This is my point. If you didn't go to school, your parents could be in big trouble. But there are other reasons kids in the U.S. -- and most other countries -- are required to attend school until they reach a certain age. ... Requiring kids to go to school is called "compulsory education." (Compulsory means that you have to do something.) So, we have these gangs in the Bronx that can't speak English? I am so confused right now. What's going on?!?!

  • Riverton Tenant

    WOW!!! My bad! Thanks for sharing this info.

  • Riverton Tenant

    LOL! Thanks for letting us know. #45 will name them and blame them all the same tho!

  • Riverton Tenant

    yea, that's true!

  • Riverton Tenant

    I think the store owner should clean out the store... It's going STINK in a couple of days. Egg, Milk, Meat, and the cat...
    He would need a mask before entering and he should sell it!

  • Riverton Tenant

    Yes!

  • Riverton Tenant

    Someone mentioned that one of the gang members, who dragged the litlle boy outside of the store, thought it was going to be a fight. No knives or any weapon. Once they pulled out the weapon, he jumped back and yelled, WTF!!! Yo, stop it! WTF! Then, he ran like everyone else. His female friend at work, told him, the young boy died. He started to cry and turned himself in to the cops. He said, No one said anything about weapons. He knew they were going to fight. He knew he should not be with the gang. He is a military man. He has a child. He is getting death threats now. It was a big mistake, No weapons was suppose to be used. He cried and turned himself in. I heard this but don't know if it is 100% true.

  • voyageurs47

    Does NY have the death penalty? Sorry if it seems like a stupid question, but I don't know the answer...if these disgusting people are indeed illegal, deporting them will not help. They will probably find a way to come back to the U.S.A. They deserve the death penalty.
