Rapper Cardi B has donated $8,000 to the family of a 15-year-old boy who was brutally slain in New York City in an attack captured on video.
Five men repeatedly stabbed Lesandro (Junior) Guzman-Feliz with machetes and knives on Wednesday night in the Bronx. Horrid video of the incident shows the attack and then Lesandro trying to run to the hospital, which was just a few blocks away.
He collapsed and died before he could make it.
Cardi B, who is from the Bronx, posted about the brutal slaying with the hashtag #justiceforjunior.
"These Bronx streets are ruthless," the 25-year-old rapper said on Instagram.
