#JusticeForJunior New Footage Shows Bodega Worker Refused to Help Dying Teen
Warning Graphic Video Below
New surveillance footage shows the moments before and after Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz was brutally jumped and stabbed to death. In the video, we see the 15-year-old ask for the help from the worker of the Cruz and Chiky Grocery on E. 183rd St. in the Bronx. Both times the worker refuses to help the young teen.

In the beginning of the video, the teen is seen trying to hide behind the counter. When the attackers walk in, the worker points out where Junior is hiding, and he gets dragged out of the store. Junior then comes back to the store bloodied. The worker again refuses to help. Junior then walks out of the bodega. Amazingly, a customer is seen purchasing an item over Junior's blood.
Junior would go on to die outside of St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx.

On Monday, City Council members Ritchie Torres, Vanessa Gibson, and Rafael Salamanca wrote a letter to Department of Consumer Affairs asking that the bodega be shut down. They said that the store did not show “good moral character.” There is also a petition being spread around demanding the store get its license revoked.
The store has not opened since last Wednesday when the incident took place.
