They had recently taken two of the suspects into custody but were later able to track down three more members that they arrested, as well.
It has since been reported that Guzman-Feliz, who died just steps away from a hospital, may have been the victim of a case of mistaken identity.
Police are offering $2,500 leading to the arrests of several suspects connected to the stabbing death of a 15-year-old boy outside of a Bronx bodega.
The rapper donated to the family's GoFundMe for Lesandro's funeral expenses, which has raised more than $100,000 thus far.
Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, 15, of the Bronx, was stabbed and slashed multiple times including once in the neck. According to some eyewitness accounts, police did nothing to help the teen, who collapsed on the sidewalk near the hospital after asking for water.
CCTV video posted by Facebook user Riichy Rich Friday shows the pack of men forcibly dragging Guzman-Feliz by the hood of his jacket out of the bodega and frantically stabbing and slashing him with a machete before fleeing on foot.
According to published reports, members of the Trinitarios street gang apologized to Lesandro's family, saying the men attacked the teenager believing he was someone else.

"That was a baby", railed Janet Zorilla, whose son was friends with Guzman-Feliz.
Guzman-Feliz was described as "a snazzy dresser who liked jeans and Air Jordans".
Cell phone video shows the teen running to St. Barnabas Hospital nearby as his wounds bleed out.
The victim's 17-year-old sister Genesis Collado-Felix said, "He tried to run into the store because he thought he'd be safe".
And of his killing, she said, "A little kid, alone with no weapon".
Police are encouraging people to continue coming forward if they have any information to share. "They were grown men and he was only 15". People can be heard telling the boy, who was referred to as "junior", to "keep [his] eyes open" as they told him to "keep talking".
