Police have arrested five gang members in connection to the vicious slaying of a 15-year-old boy outside a bodega in the Bronx Wednesday night, sources tell CBS2.

It was a step towards justice in the wake of what the family and friends of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz say was a tragic and fatal case of mistaken identity.

If you haven't heard about the murder of the 15-year-old year boy Lesandro Guzman-Feliz. I refuse to watch the video circulating around, but this is so heartbreaking.

I really don’t understand how people can be so gruesome, you have to truly be the spawn of Satan to do something like that. He died a horrible death, I feel so awful for the victims family. RIP Junior. So sad.
