A video showing the frantic final moments of her dying son’s life left his tormented mother screaming and shaking Thursday inside a Bronx courtroom.
A half-dozen court officers were needed to restrain the convulsing Leandra Feliz, who howled in agony as they carried her into the courthouse hallway during cross-examination of a prosecution witness.
The video captured Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz clutching at his fatal neck wound, with blood pouring out as he tries in vain to flag down help on a Bronx sidewalk. The heartbreaking images were too much for his mom, who suffered an almost immediate breakdown.
"This is a very difficult situation,” said Yvette Rodriguez, 54, a close friend of the Feliz family. “This is a very heartbreaking thing.”
Aspiring police officer Guzman-Feliz was murdered in an apparent case of mistaken identity by members of the Trinitarios street gang on June 20, 2018, prosecutors charged. The badly outnumbered teen was dragged to death from a Bronx bodega, with one of his assailants hacking the teen with a machete.
