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

The latest suspect, identified as Elvin Garcia, was taken into custody in the Bronx and is set to be arraigned later Tuesday, officials said.

The accused killers of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, 15, who was massacred with knives and machetes on a NY street in a case of mistaken identity.

Surveillance video shows Junior being dragged outside the bodega while customers inside looked and him being stabbed multiple times before the men fled the scene.

Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz was dragged out of a store on Bathgate Avenue and killed by a group of men with a machete. He ran to a hospital at the end of the block, but was pronounced dead at the scene.

The identities of the suspects and the charges they may face have not yet been announced. On Monday night, a huge vigil attracting hundreds was held outside, while thousands attended a wake for the boy. Authorities say the men attacked Junior in a case of mistaken identity after a video circulating social media showed a teen having sex with a female relative of one of the attackers.

Police said Guzman-Feliz knew the suspects and the stabbing may have been gang-related, though Guzman-Feliz-who had no criminal record-was not a part of a gang.

At a court hearing Tuesday afternoon, Jose Muniz, 21, Jose Tavarez, 21, Manuel Rivera, 18, Danel Fernandez, 21, Santiago Rodriguez, 24, and Joniki Martinez, 24, waived their right to contest extradition to New York City.
