NEW YORK – Police have arrested a 14th suspect in the brutal gang-related slaying of a teenager outside a New York City deli.
Twenty-year-old Frederick Then, of Reading, Pennsylvania, was arrested Sunday on murder, manslaughter and other charges in the June 20 machete death of 15-year-old Lesandro Guzman-Feliz.
Information on Then’s attorney wasn’t immediately available.
Authorities say the suspects are members of the violent Trinitarios gang. They said Guzman-Feliz was mistakenly targeted by the gang and stabbed outside the grocery store.
