NEW YORK -

A twelfth suspect has been arrested in the death of a 15-year-old New York City boy who was slashed in the neck with a machete outside a Bronx bodega.

Luis Cabrarasantos, 25, was pulled over by state troopers Monday in Southbury, Connecticut.

Cabrarasantos was driving a car with several passengers.

It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.

An eleventh suspect was arrested last Friday and charged with murder, manslaughter and gang assault in the June 20 death of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz.

According to officials, they believe Guzman-Feliz was wrongfully targeted and the men were looking for someone else.

Six suspects were arrested in Paterson. 

Authorities say they believe the home the men were found in is a gang stronghold. 

The suspects are allegedly members of the Trinitarios street gang.

Guzman-Feliz, known as "Junior," dreamed of becoming a police officer, and his death shocked the community.

Police have established a scholarship in his honor.

AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
