THE BRONX, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- The 15-year-old Bronx teen now universally known as Junior should have been starting his junior year at Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health and Science Charter School on Home Street, near East 166th.
Instead, his fellow classmates and teachers remain jolted by the June 20 chase and murder of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, captured on more than a dozen surveillance cameras inside and outside a Bathgate Avenue bodega.
“I felt we lost somebody we shouldn't have,” said former dean Arndray Gay, who taught Junior physical education in the teen's final year at the school.
“Junior was great, he was very funny, very talented,” the teacher said, recalling he last saw Junior in a second floor hallway, five days before the murder. The teen had just taken a science Regents, he told the man called Mr. G.
