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.

    This is horrible. He was too young and it so unfortunate that gangs mistaken him for someone else that offended them and killed him. This young man had too much to live for. After Lesandro was hurt, he was still alive and even went into a bodega crying for help. However, the bodega workers had no feelings and forced him out and did not even try to help him. They could have at least called the police to get him help, but they did none of that. They had no common sense. Now there is a big boycott against that bodega and likely it will go out of business. What goes around comes around. The bodega workers had no humanity to help the young man and now their business is gone. Those gang members that attacked him are now going to be in jail and be punished as they deserve. I just feel so sorry for the family and friends that lost this young man.

    The only thing that β€œWE” the COMMUNITY can do now is use this lamb that was slained as a new reason to commit to one another, to the growth and safety of our streets and to the direct involvement in our kids lives and of those in our community to encourage and help them become the stars they were created to be instead of becoming the victims of the evil forces which are controlling and destroying our young. We all suffer…even the family of the suspects. We are all fighting against what we cannot see yet we can see when possesses by those who’s actions demonstrate the power and effect of it. Out with all the hate and let us all learn how to love one another and be patient in the process. We all need change within ourselves…and that’s where it starts. R.I.P JUNIORπŸ‘ΌπŸΌβ€οΈπŸ˜₯

  18. G Alice says

    So I live in Cali. I have a question for everyone. If you see young people that are dressed like gang members and hang around in a group of 10 or more at the park. Should the police search them for weapons? Gang members start as early as middle school. Should the schools hold accountable the parents early on if their child is dressing and promoting gangster lifestyle? To make it a law that they must attend theraphy.

    After watching the cemetery scene, (lowering of the body)…. I wish Junior could have been laid to rest in an above ground setting. The burial below ground makes him seem so far away…. πŸ˜₯πŸ˜ͺ😰
