Someone out there knows these men, all wanted for the brutal murder of 15-yr-old Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Ortiz in #thebronx. While police continue to search for the five unidentified men responsible for his murder, Junior's family say they've received Facebook messages from men affiliated with the Trinitarios Dominican gang who admitted the teen was the victim of mistaken identity.

According to police, the mortally wounded boy never reached the hospital and collapsed a block away.

"He tried to run into the store because he thought he'd be safe".

A horrifying video provided by the New York Post shows Trinitarios gang members dragging the teen from a bodega in the Bronx Wednesday night. Surveillance of the men was released by NY police on Friday. They dragged him from the store like a dog, ' Collado-Feliz told the New York Post.

"His dream in the future was to be a detective", Guzman-Feliz's mother told the New York Post.


The group fled the scene and Guzman-Feliz ran to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, police said.

Since Guzman-Feliz's death, the hashtag #JusticeForJunior has gone viral on social media.

Bronx native Cardi B weighed in on the incident calling out officers for being quick to "harass" residents but not help. It's unclear if he surrendered to police or was taken into custody.

He then was seen running across the street, heading towards the nearby St Barnabas Hospital.

"Hey everyone I opened up a gofundme account for my brother in law and he's family due to financial difficulties at this moment since he's death was so sudden and tragic".
