NEW YORK -- Two more suspects, included a reputed gang leader, were arrested Tuesday in the death of a 15-year-old New York City boy who was slashed in the neck with a machete outside a bodega. Tuesday's arrests were the ninth and tenth people arrested in connection with the June 20 death of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz in the Bronx.
Gabriel Ramirez Concepcion, 26, was arrested Tuesday and charged with murder, manslaughter, gang assault and criminal possession of a weapon, the NYPD said.
The NYPD announced Concepcion's arrest hours after they said 29-year-old Diego Suero was arrested and charged with murder, manslaughter, gang assault, conspiracy and criminal possession of a weapon in the June 20 death of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz in the Bronx.
Sources tell CBS New York that Suero is believed to be the local leader of the violent .
Information on Suero's lawyer wasn't immediately available. No telephone number was listed with his home address.
Guzman-Feliz, known as "Junior," dreamed of becoming a police officer, and his death shocked the community.
His funeral last Wednesday ended with a crowd of several hundred people chanting "Justice for Junior!" as pallbearers dressed in Yankees jerseys loaded his casket into a hearse.
The New York City Police Foundation has established a scholarship in his honor.
