Thursday could be the anniversary that is one-year of “Junior” Guzman-Feliz’s death.
The gang-related killing of 15-year-old Lesandro Guzman-Feliz 12 months ago delivered shock waves through their Bronx community, as relatives and buddies mourned the increasing loss of a “sweet kid” who had imagined to become an authorities detective.
The NYPD arrested 14 suspects, living as much as its vow of making “no stone unturned” in the research in to the slaying of Guzman-Feliz, who had been affectionately called “Junior.”
On June 14, the five guys accused of fatally stabbing the teenager had been discovered accountable of very very first- and murder that is second-degree conspiracy and gang attack. Eight other suspects, who will be accused of getting involved in the attack but did stab Guzman-Feliz, n’t are increasingly being tried individually. One suspect pleaded responsible when you look at the full instance and it is cooperating because of the prosecution.
NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill has credited the arrests to your public’s “unrivaled help” plus an “outpouring of nonstop assistance” in case.
