The accused killers of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, 15, who was massacred with knives and machetes on a NY street in a case of mistaken identity. He ran to a hospital at the end of the block, but was pronounced dead at the scene.

As police prepare for the suspects' extradition hearing today in New Jersey, a memorial for the young man continues to grow in the Bronx. One video captured him bleeding on the ground as witnesses scrambled to help.

Those men have been identified as Jose Taverez, 21, of the Bronx; Manuel Rivera, 18, of the Bronx; Danel Fernandez, 21, of the Bronx; Santiago Rodriguez, 24, of the Bronx; Jose Muniz, 21, of New Jersey; and Joniki Martinez, 24, of Freeport, New York.

Only one of the suspects could speak without the aid of a Spanish translator.

Rihanna and Cardi B are among many who have paid tribute to a 15-year-old teen who was murdered in the Bronx, New York, last week. People can be heard telling the boy, who was referred to as "junior", to "keep [his] eyes open" as they told him to "keep talking". The NYPD announced later Tuesday that another man was arrested in the Bronx, bringing the total to eight in the case. An additional person was picked up in the Dominican Republic and is now cooperating with the investigation, with no charges filed.

Derek Grullon, Junior's brother-in-law, has claimed members of a gang have reached out to him on Facebook claiming they killed his relative in a case of mistaken identity. The gang's namesake is a nod to three Dominican revolutionaries.

"While it might be unfair to expect a business owner, untrained in law enforcement, to perform heroics in the midst of savage gang violence, the failure to do something as basic as calling 911 is morally unconscionable", the council members wrote.

'Recipe for disaster' - Tendulkar urges two-ball rethink
Tendulkar suggested that cricket administration must rethink on the concept of two new balls in ODI cricket. Moreover, it has also made hard for spinners who generally prefers bowling with old ball.

The NYPD released a statement saying that they're in the process of interviewing suspects and that more arrests are anticipated.

The boy survived, but he remains in critical condition.

"He was a sweet child", she said.

Thousands of people turned out to pay their respects at the wake Monday. Four people connected to the attack were apprehended.

The bodega has been closed since the killing.

A GoFundMe Page was set up to help the family with funeral costs.
