Tributes and Anger for Lesandro Guzman-Feliz Killing

At least seven suspected gang members arrested in connection with the murder of a 15-year-old boy in the Bronx have been identified by authorities.

Derek Grullon, Junior's brother-in-law, has claimed members of a gang have reached out to him on Facebook claiming they killed his relative in a case of mistaken identity.

Guzman-Feliz was dragged out of a grocery store in the Bronx late Wednesday night last week.

News of the new arrest came as a New Jersey judge ordered the extradition of six suspects captured in Paterson Sunday.

The NYPD already has 19-year-old Kevin Alvarez in custody. According to the Post, all five suspects are members of the deadly Dominican gang Trinitarios.

Since the news broke, several other celebrities have sounded off of the slaying as well, taking to their social media to write touching messages reflecting on the news. He was never going to give up on his dream of being an NYPD detective & WE'LL NEVER GIVE UP ON HIM.

The Passaic County Prosecutor's Office arrested 21-year-old Jose Tavarez, 18-year-old Manuel Rivera, 21-year-old Daniel Fernandez, 24-year-old Santiago Rodriguez, 21-year-old Jose Muniz, and 24-year-old Jonki Martinez on Sunday.

On Monday, the line for his wake outside R.G. Ortiz Funeral Home stretched around the block and some people said they stood in line for four hours to see his family inside, ABC 7 reported.

"We have a unified focus that we will not tolerate gang activity, particularly anything as heinous as this crime", Chief Shea said.

The statement said the school would pay for his funeral, and a GoFundMe campaign set up by his sister-in-law, Ione Gutierrez, had raised more than $200,000.

"I saw the video and I couldn't sleep for days", said another man who joined the crowd mourning the teenager.

National Basketball Association star Carmelo Anthony and wife La La were just two of the thousands of mourners who paid tribute to the slain Bronx teen who was killed after gang members mistakenly took revenge out on the wrong person.

"The senseless nature of this horrific tragedy hit all of our communities, in every #NYC neighborhood, very hard", New York Police Commissioner James O'Neill said on Twitter with the hashtag #JusticeForJunior.

The attackers apparently mistook him for a man in a sex tape that was posted online. Another video clip shows him stumbling back inside the deli after the attack, bleeding, and a man behind the counter apparently ordering him out. Alvarez is charged with second-degree murder, gang assault and other charges.
