The Bronx bodega where Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz was killed has officially reopened under new ownership.

The previous owner sold the store after receiving threats since the teen's death.

Sources say the new owner is a man named Wagner Baez.

There were calls from the community to turn the store into a community center, but one person tells us having a bodega there is important.

"We have a lot of older people in the neighborhood. People who dont have a mode of transportation who depend on the bodegas for their groceries," the person said.

"The street is being renamed in honor of Junior so people don't forget what happened. There are various murals, but we also have to move on as a community," said another.

Back in June, police say Junior was dragged from the bodega and fatally stabbed by alleged gang members.

Investigators arrested and charged 12 men in connection with his death.

All have pleaded not guilty.
