Two more people have been arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of a 15-year-old outside a New York City bodega last month.
Gabriel Ramirez Concepcion, a 26-year-old Bronx resident, and Diego Suero, 29, were arrested Tuesday in connection with the murder of Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz. They both faces multiple charges that include murder, gang assault and manslaughter, according to authorities.
"That's good news," Junior's father, Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, told News 4 of the arrests. "I want everyone caught. I want justice for Junior."
Eight others were previously charged in connection with the brutal slaying, which was captured on surveillance footage on the night of June 20. Junior was dragged by multiple men outside of the bodega and repeatedly stabbed with machetes and knives in alleged case of mistaken identity.
He ran to the nearby St. Barnabas Hospital to get help but died before he made it inside the emergency room.
Kevin Alvarez, 19, Elvin Garcia, 23, Jose Muniz, 21, Jose Tavarez, 21, Jonaiki Martinez-Estrella, 24, Daniel Fernandez, 21, Manuel Rivera, 18, and Antonio Hernandez-Santiago, 24, also face murder charges, among many others, after the Guzman-Feliz murder.
Many of the suspects are allegedly members of a local street gang, the Trinitarios, according to police.
The initial eight suspects have all pleaded not guilty, according to Newsweek.
“This investigation is not over,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said at a news conference last week. “The brutal nature of this crime, we will leave literally no stone unturned.”
