Lesandro tried to run to St. Barnabas Hospital just a block away, but police say he ended up collapsing on the sidewalk.

Guzman-Feliz was part the of the NYPD's Explorers Program, a group for youths interested in a law enforcement career, and dreamed of becoming a police officer one day.

The other six suspects, identified as Danel Fernandez, 21, Joniki Martinez, 24, Jose Muniz, 21, Manuel Rivera, 18, Santiago Rodriguez, 24, and Jose Tavarez, were arrested in Paterson, N.J. on Sunday and are awaiting an extradition hearing scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, prosecutors said. She said Lesandro had recently become friends with a group of older boys, but she insisted he was not in a gang.

Derek Grullon, 19, who is in a relationship with Guzman-Feliz's sister told the paper the gang leader had sent a Snapchat message to the family in which he said sorry for the mistake.

It is not clear whether the members of the Trinitarios gang - a Dominican gang based out of New York's Rikers Island prison - are American citizens.

"I saw the video and I couldn't sleep for days", said another man who joined the crowd mourning the teenager.

Kevin Alvarez has been arrested and charged for the grizzly murder of 15-year-old Lesandro Guzman-Feliz in the Bronx, New York.

Six other suspects were apprehended in New Jersey and are scheduled to be arraigned in the Bronx Wednesday.

The man who wielded the machete delivered the "death blow" to Guzman-Feliz, according to his mother.

The New York Police Department released a statement on the matter Sunday night.

"Since he was 5 years old, he told me, 'Mommy, I want to be a police, '" his mother Leandra Feliz told the Post.

"What happened to this young man should have never happened so we're going to take this walk and we're going to walk for Junior", said community advocate Tony Herbert.

Guzman-Feliz is then seen exiting the store-leaving pools of blood behind him.

New Yorkers have been shocked by the senseless murder. The police union said it will "carry on in his memory, until the streets are safe" for all New Yorkers.

In response, the "Be Careful" hitmaker encouraged her Instagram followers to "check out" the GoFundMe account, which has raised more than $147,000 for Junior's family so far.

Rihanna also paid a touching tribute to the boy posting: "Can't stop thinking about this poor baby boy, and how his family must feel right now!" In an Instagram post she called the Bronx streets "ruthless".
