The video also featured a relative of one of the gang members.

The gang's leader reportedly apologized on Facebook, according to reports, saying that it was a case of mistaken identity and that Junior was not the intended victim. "My son was my son, but he was my best friend", Lisandro Guzman told the Daily News.

Guzman-Feliz was described as "a snazzy dresser who liked jeans and Air Jordans".

His family says the gang has admitted on social media it targeted the wrong person. Another video clip shows him stumbling back inside the deli after the attack, bleeding, and a man behind the counter apparently ordering him out.

In a post on her IG page, Lala, who is celebrating her birthday today, stressed how important it was for her a Melo to show their love and support to Junior's family.

New York Police Commissioner James O'Neill was among the hundreds who attended his wake. "Thank you for everybody here".

"These Bronx streets are ruthless", the rapper wrote on Instagram after uploading a picture of Lesandro and his mother, Leandra Feliz, in hospital. "Makes me feel like sure my son gonna have justice", Feliz said.
