The other six are in custody in Paterson, New Jersey, and will be extradited to NY to determine any role in the slaying, authorities said. Junior ran to the nearby St. Barnabas Hospital, but was unable to receive immediate medical care after police questioned him about the incident.

The gang is based mostly in the Bronx and Upper Manhattan and has members aged in the teens to early 20's, the New York Post reported.

Guzman-Feliz's death sent shockwaves through the community, and on social media, as the hashtag #JusticeforJunior began trending.

The Trinitarios, considered one of the largest Dominican gangs in the country, was reportedly started in 1989 by three inmates at Riker's Island jail.

One suspect already identified by police, 19-year-old Kevin J. Alvarez, has appeared in court charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, gang assault and assault.

Leandra Feliz, the mother of the late Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, who was dragged out of a convenience store and viciously slashed in the neck last Wednesday night by a group of gang members, spoke to the New York Post early this week. He said the suspect was arrested following a short foot chase.

Guzman-Feliz lived on Bathgate Avenue, one block away from the bodega. 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.

"A source told PIX11 one gang member was angry because a relative was featured in a sex video and thought Guzman-Feliz was in the video", the report said.

The six men arrested in Paterson on Sunday will be in Superior Court in New Jersey on Tuesday for an extradition hearing. On Friday, the owners told PIX11 they did everything they could to help Guzman-Feliz.

"They know him! We live here 17 year, [the owner] knows him", Guzman-Feliz's mom, Leandra Feliz, said over the weekend. "Makes me feel like sure my son gonna have justice", Feliz said.

According to the New York Post, the Trinitarios "top leader" got in touch with the family to apologise for the slaying.
