"Junior" Lesandro Guzman-Feliz funeral today: Teenager laid to rest after fatal stabbing by gang in Bronx New York City


It was disgusting what happened to this kid.

CBS News reports thousands of mourners said farewell Wednesday to 15-year-old Lesandro Guzman-Feliz. He was brutally stabbed to death last week, shocking the community in the Bronx.

Six suspects were extradited from New Jersey and appeared in court earlier to face murder charges.

Funeral services were held at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in the Bronx for Guzman-Feliz, affectionately known as Junior, who was attacked by a gang of men outside a bodega June 20. He collapsed and died while running to a nearby hospital after being stabbed and slashed in the neck with a machete.

"We are gathered here in shock, silence and pain," the Rev. David Guzman said in Spanish. "Today, a shadow of sadness covers us, Lesandro's family, the Bronx, but also New York City and the whole world."
