A 15-year-old boy was fatally stabbed after a dispute broke out in the Bronx late Wednesday.
Police said the victim knew the suspects and the attack could have been gang-related; however, his sister said he was not involved in any such activities.
Authorities said the teenager, a pupil at the Dr Richard Izquierdo Health and Science Charter School, was stabbed multiple times and was left with a huge gash in his neck.
A violent New York City gang reportedly claimed responsibility for killing a 15-year-old male, then apologized to the family, saying he was the wrong person. According to ABC 7, Guzman-Feliz ran to St. Barnabas Hospital, located one block away from the crime scene, before collapsing on the sidewalk.

The grieving family of a Bronx teen murdered in a horrific case of mistaken identity last week still hasn't heard a peep from Mayor de Blasio or Police Commissioner James O'Neill, the mom told The Post on Sunday.

Social media has reacted to the news of violence and lack of support by onlookers and police on the scene, making the hashtags #Justice4Junior and #JusticeForJunior go viral on Twitter. Rapper Cardi B, a Bronx native, was among those paying tribute, posting on Instagram about getting justice for the teen.

A GoFundMe has been started for the teen's family that has so far raised more than $30,000. It's an expansive investigation with one salient objective: "#JusticeForJunior".
