Five Suspects Arrested For The Murder Of Junior Guzman-Feliz

Guzman-Feliz, according to investigators, got into an argument with a group outside a bodega on East 183rd Street and was stabbed in the neck.

"They dragged him from the store like a dog", Guzman-Feliz's 17-year-old sister, Genesis Collado-Feliz told the New York Post.

When authorities went to the house, which is connected to the Trinitarios gang, one suspect managed to escape but was apprehended minutes later, sources say. "They were grown men and he was only 15". In one video, taken from outside a window several stories above the violence scene, bystanders can be heard screaming, "Oh sh**!" Many people who gathered Sunday said they want it to be closed for good, arguing the store owner and staff did not do enough to help the teenager.

Cell phone video shows the teen running to St. Barnabas Hospital nearby as his wounds bleed out.

Grief-stricken relatives and friends of Guzman-Feliz gathered outside the 48th Precinct on Sunday night - where Alvarez was being held - to voice their outrage his death.
