NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- All 12 suspects in the murder of 15-year-old Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz were in Bronx Supreme Court Wednesday.

Police say they now have all suspects in custody and have identified everyone that was captured on surveillance video.

The final suspect, 25-year-old Luis Cabrera Santos, was brought back to the Bronx Tuesday night, after he was captured in Connecticut last week.

Santos was stopped in his gray Honda on I-84 East, after a state trooper noticed his license plate and realized it was wanted in connection to the murder of Guzman-Feliz.

Guzman-Feliz was dragged out of a bodega in the Belmont area of the borough and was attacked with a machete and other knives.

Police say that Santos didn't stab him but had taken part in chasing the 15-year-old before his murder. They said he is likely the final suspect to be arrested in the murder.

Lesandro's mother was in court and shouted 'asesino' (assassin) after Jonaiki Martinez-Estrella and Daniel Fernandez were indicted on murder charges.

In the wake of the indictments, New York City Councilman Andy King will also be announcing a new initiative the city is undertaking to create “Safe Haven Zones.”

Bronx businesses are expected to participate in the training with the councilman and Guzman-Feliz’s father, Elisandro Guzman.
