Rihanna and Cardi B pay tribute to murdered teen

Surveillance images show one of multiple stabbing suspects holding a knife outside a bodega in the Bronx where a 15-year-old boy was killed on June 20

Friends, family and neighbors gathered in the Bronx to honor and remember an innocent 15-year-old boy who was killed last week in what a gang member says was a case of mistaken identity.

According to the teen's mother, Leandra Feliz, her son began his dream of becoming a police officer by joining the NYPD's Explorers Program. He was dragged out of the Cruz and Chiky Grocery store on E. 183rd Street and Bathgate Avenue in the Belmont section of the Bronx at about 11:40 p.m. on Wednesday. "If they could give me the life of my son I'd be happy".

Alvarez, 19, was arrested and charged with two counts of murder, manslaughter, gang assault and assault, police said.

NY police have continued to update fans on Lesandro's murder investigation with daily social media posts.

That same day, four other suspects were taken in custody. "It's messed up what they did to him". "They broke my heart", said Leandra Feliz, Junior's mother.

Those men have been identified as Jose Taverez, 21, of the Bronx; Manuel Rivera, 18, of the Bronx; Danel Fernandez, 21, of the Bronx; Santiago Rodriguez, 24, of the Bronx; Jose Muniz, 21, of New Jersey; and Joniki Martinez, 24, of Freeport, New York.

Guzman-Feliz resembled another youth who was in a sex video with a rival gang member's relative, which lead to the mistaken identity, a police source told ABC News.

WPIX first reported Sunday that multiple people were taken out of an alleged gang stronghold on East 24th Street in Paterson.

All six will appear in an extradition hearing Tuesday afternoon in Paterson, the Passaic County prosecutor's office said, adding the suspects will then be extradited to the Bronx, where some of them are likely to face charges in connection with the slaying of the teen.

The hashtag #JusticeforJunior has been circulating the the Internet since the story of his death went viral.

The Richard Izquierdo Health and Science Charter School, which Guzman-Feliz attended, has offered to pay for his funeral services.
