Slain teen may have been victim of mistaken identity in sex tape revenge plot

A 19-year-old is facing murder charges in the brutal killing of an innocent teen in New York City.

The New York Daily News is reporting that the police have five suspects in custody, even tracking one down in the Dominican Republic. Surveillance footage from the attack shows Junior running towards St. Barnabus Hospital where he died. Jose Muniz, Santiago Rodriguez, Joniki Martinez, Manuel Rivera, Jose Tavarez, and Danel Fernandez agreed to be transported to NY to face charges of homicide, manslaughter and assault in the fatal stabbing.

Members of the Trinitarios street gangs reportedly apologized to Guzman-Feliz's family and said, "It wasn't supposed to be him".

Carmelo Anthony, a former member of the New York Knicks, and TV personality La La Anthony visited Guzman-Feliz's family Monday. Mourners have been gathering in the street outside the store, which has been closed since the murder, and the hashtag #justiceforjunior is spreading on social media, where many expressed anger over what happened to the teen.

Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, 15, was a member of the NYPD's Police Explorers program. "They broke my heart", Leandra Feliz said.

Lesandro, affectionately referred to as Junior, was beaten and stabbed to death by a gang of men on Wednesday.

Uber told the publication that it prohibits drivers from looking down at any device while manning an self-driving vehicle . Following the crash, Uber has dealt with a major setback in its aim to develop self-driving cars.

Guzman-Feliz was dragged from a bodega near his home in the Belmont section of the Bronx on June 20 and stabbed and slashed with a machete and knives in an apparent case of mistaken identity. According to reports, several of the suspects were picked up in New Jersey, and are expected to be extradited to New York Tuesday. Police believe the attack was an act of revenge after a sex tape was released of one of the suspect's female relative.

On Twitter, the New York City Patrolman's Benevolent Association said Guzman-Feliz's death "is proof that we can not rest or retreat". Rapper Cardi B, a Bronx native, was among those paying tribute, posting on Instagram about getting justice for the teen.

The mother of the 15-year-old victim spoke out Monday as thousands gathered to pay respects to her son at his wake.

He sent a message to the family of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz saying the teen wasn't the one the Trintarios were trying to kill.

"The only thing I want is my son back, and I'm not going to have him anymore". "Not just a police officer, a detective".
