'Justice for Junior:' Never-Before-Seen Attack Video Shown at Machete Murder Trial | News 4 Now
Startling never-before-seen footage of the savage machete attack in a Bronx bodega last summer that claimed the life of a 15-year-old boy was presented by prosecutors, a day after the trial for five suspects charged with his brutal murder kicked off.
The second day of trial in the killing of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz is expected to be emotional and filled with graphic video and photos.
Prosecutors introduced three clips of video. Two of the clips were taken by cell phone and show Guzman-Feliz outside the hospital and a high angle shot of the attack. The third clip is surveillance video outside the hospital.
One such graphic video presented was from the NYPD camera at the corner of Bathgate and 183rd Street in the Bronx — a corner that now bears Guzman-Feliz’s name. The footage, which was never released, shows the attack. The video showcases the attackers dragging Guzman-Feliz out of the bodega as he tries to fight back as the mob swings knives at him.
Anchor Stefan Holt also reports on an alleged gang member arrested in Yonkers, the NXIVM trial and a wild car crash in the Bronx.
