Bronx Borough President Reuben Diaz Jr. releases statement after five members of the Trinitarios gang were all found guilty of the stabbing death of 15-year-old Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz on June 20, 2018.

“Nearly one year ago our borough felt the unbearable pain of horrible loss. A young man, Lesandro ‘Junior’ Guzman-Feliz, was senselessly murdered in an act of heinous, reprehensible gang violence," said Diaz Jr. "Junior was everything we want our children to aspire to, and he was needlessly struck down. The pain of this act was made even worse due to the graphic public nature of the crimes, which played out on video for everyone to see. The entire world shared the sorrow of The Bronx.

“Today Junior’s family, and in fact our entire city, has received a measure of justice. I thank District Attorney Darcel D. Clark for her and her office’s diligent prosecution of this case.

“Throughout this ordeal I have been inspired by Junior’s parents, Leandra Feliz and Lisandro Guzman, and how they have dealt with unimaginable tragedy. Ms. Feliz has been a model of strength and grace in the face of devastating loss. Today’s verdicts will not bring Junior back. Nothing can. But these verdicts will send a message to those who would commit acts of senseless violence, and help us move forward and bring closure to this awful chapter in our borough’s history.”
