Funeral for Bronx teen Lesandro Guzman-Feliz
Thousands are expected to attend the funeral of an innocent 15-year-old boy brutally murdered in the Bronx. Lesandro Guzman-Feliz’s death has touched many people.
Overnight, 23-year-old Elvin Garcia was the latest to be charged with murder, manslaughter and gang assault.
With the #JusticeForJunior hashtag trending in remembrance of Guzman-Feliz, who was affectionately known as Junior, six other defendants appeared in court in Paterson and waived extradition. They will head back to New York City to face charges for their alleged respective roles in the attack outside a bodega on East 183rd Street and Bathgate Avenue in the Tremont section, in what authorities believe was a case of mistaken identity that left the entire community outraged.
