11th suspect arrested in death of teen killed in gang attack
NEW YORK (AP) — An eleventh suspect has been arrested in the death of a 15-year-old New York City boy who was slashed in the neck with a machete outside a Bronx bodega.
Police say 21-year-old Danilo Payamps Pacheco was arrested Friday and charged with murder, manslaughter and gang assault in the June 20 death of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz in the Bronx.
Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.
Guzman-Feliz, known as “Junior,” dreamed of becoming a police officer, and his death shocked the community.
Court records show a suspect arrested Tuesday was out on bail in a gun case when Guzman-Feliz was killed.
Diego Suero was charged last September with criminal possession of a loaded firearm. The 29-year-old’s next court date is Aug. 24.
Suero’s lawyer in that case didn’t respond to a message.
