NYPD make arrests in brutal mistaken identity killing of 15-year-old Bronx teen

New York City Police made several arrests in connection with last week’s mistaken identity killing of a 15-year-old boy at a Bronx bodega.

According to the New York Post, NYPD Police investigators identified one of the five suspects arrested Sunday as 19-year-old Kevin Alvarez, of the Bronx, who was charged with murder, manslaughter, and gang assault.

Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.

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

Police say the victim, 15-year-old Lesandro Guzman-Ortiz, was attacked Tuesday night by a group of men outside the bodega. He died after getting slashed in the neck with a machete.
