Thousands of friends, loved ones, neighbors and shocked strangers attended the wake of the 15-year-old boy who was stabbed to death this Wednesday in a Bronx bodega.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Lesandro Guzman-Feliz was dragged out of the store by a group of men who mistook him for another person allegedly involved in a sex tape scandal.

As he lay on the ground, the men beat him up and stabbed him with a machete. They later ran off, leaving him to bleed out on the floor outside the bodega.

In a newly released video, Guzman-Feliz is seen running into the store after the attack, gravely injured and seeking help. He lays on the counter, bleeding, before being kicked out by bodega owners. The boy then stumbles out of the store and tries to make his way to a hospital a block away. As he reaches the entrance, he collapses and is pronounced dead at the scene.

"He was a sweet kid with a very good heart," said Guzman-Feliz's heartbroken mother at his wake this Monday.

Along with the rest of the mourners, the boy's parents held signs that read "Save our Streets," "#JusticeforJunior" and "#StoptheViolence." His father also got a tattoo of his son's face on his hand.

"I need justice for my son. That's my Junior baby," he told reporters.

As of now, seven suspects connected to the killing have been arrested. They were all found inside a New Jersey home hours after the crime, and are believed to be part of a Dominican gang called Trinitarios.

Kevin Alvarez, 19, was arrested for murder, gang assault and manslaughter along with six other men. They are all expected to appear in front of a judge today, June 26, to face charges related to the boy's horrific murder.
