Community remembers ‘Junior’ 3 months after his death

Posted: Updated:

Community members came together Thursday to remember Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz three months after his death.

Those keeping Junior's spirit alive gathered at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, along with Guzman-Feliz's parents.

Guzman-Feliz was dragged from a Bronx bodega, stabbed and killed in June, leading to an outcry for justice from the community and nation.

Junior's mother prayed and spoke at the Mass.

Attendees were seen wearing shirts with photos of Junior on them, while friends spoke about the teen who wanted to be a detective.

The 14th suspect in Junior's murder case turned himself in Sunday night. Thirteen others have been arrested since the night Junior was killed. All of them are on Rikers Island awaiting court dates.
