Police in New York City arrested the eleventh suspect in the horrific mistaken identity killing of 15-year-old Bronx teen Lesandro Guzman-Feliz.

NYPD officials officers Friday arrested 21-year-old Danilo Payamps Pacheco on murder, manslaughter and gang assault charges in connection with the slaying of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz.

Information on Pacheco’s attorney wasn’t immediately available.

Guzman-Feliz, known as “Junior,” was mistaken for another gang member when he was gang assaulted and slashed in the neck outside a Bronx Bodega on June 20th.

The death of the innocent teen, who dreamed of becoming an NYPD officer, shocked the community and garnered national headlines.

According to the New York Post, a suspect arrested Tuesday was out on bail in a gun case when Guzman-Feliz was killed.

Diego Suero was charged last September with criminal possession of a loaded firearm. The 29-year-old is scheduled to appear back in court on August 24th.
