On Friday, the New York Police Department released pictures of five men believed to be linked to the brutal murder of 15-year-old Lesandro ‘Junior’ Guzman-Feliz on Wednesday.

The Daily News reported that Guzman-Feliz got into an argument with the men outside of the Cruz and Chiky Grocery on the corner of E. 183rd St. and Bathgate Ave. at around 11:40 p.m. Wednesday.

Five men dragged the teenage boy out of the store, at least two of which were wearing masks. Once outside, the men stabbed Guzman-Feliz in each side of his neck. Guzman-Feliz later died from his injuries at St. Barnabas Hospital.

Video of the incident was caught by both security cameras and witnesses. The videos clearly show the men dragging Guzman-Feliz out of the store then stabbing him once outside. Horrified witnesses can be heard screaming as the boy is attacked.

After the brutal stabbing, at least some of the attackers are seen getting into a black sedan and driving off. Guzman-Feliz can be seen running with his hand on his throat.

Another video shows Guzman-Feliz covered in blood and sitting on the ground as people try desperately to help him.
