NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Authorities are looking for a 14th suspect in connection to the death of a Bronx teenager.

A 13th suspect was arrested Sunday in connection to the brutal murder of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz.

Ronald Urena, 29, was taken into police custody just after 6 p.m. on murder charges in the June 20 fatal stabbing of 15-year-old Guzman-Feliz.

On Monday, Bronx prosecutors revealed that they were looking for a 14th suspect.

On July 18, 12 other suspects were indicted on grand jury charges that ranged from first-degree murder to criminal possession of a weapon. All 12 pleaded not guilty.

Guzman-Feliz was dragged out of a Bronx bodega and fatally stabbed in the neck, after members of the Trinitarios gang mistook the teen for someone else.

Before his death, Guzman-Feliz had aspired to become a police detective and was a member of the NYPD’s Explorers program.

Officials said on July 18 that they believed they had all the suspects involved in the murder, but vowed to continue the search for any others.

Police expect to arrest a 14th suspect soon, sources told the New York Daily News.

It’s unclear what role Urena played in the attack. He is charged with murder, manslaughter, gang assault, conspiracy and criminal possession of a weapon.
