One of the men then opened fire and killed him.
Authorities say the victim was involved in a dispute prior to the shooting.
The victim was found sprawled on the ground and rushed to Jamaica Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police say the victim was a member of the Trinitarios gang, the same gang responsible for the June slaying of 15-year-old Lesandro ‘Junior’ Guzman-Feliz
His name was not immediately disclosed, pending family notification.
Cops say that the victim was a member of the notorious gang Trinitarios, the same group that was responsible for the machete murder of a Bronx teenager, according to the New York Daily News.
The horrific slaying was caught on a boedga’s surveillance camera and shows a group of men dragging Lesandro ‘Junior’ Guzman-Feliz out of the shop then slashing him with a machete and a knife, leaving him for dead.
So far 13 of the vicious attackers have been arrested. One has been charged with murder, gang assault and manslaughter.
Police are still hunting for the 14th suspect identified as 20-year-old Frederick Then.
Following Junior’s murder a gang member came forward saying the teen was killed in a case of mistaken identity. He was targeted after the gang believed he was captured on camera having sex with a gang leader’s female relative.
But, according to the New York Post, Bronx DA Darcel Clark said that was not the case.
