EMS responded and transported the victim to Lincoln Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

A passing cabbie who saw the attack gave a description of the suspects to the cops, who then arrested Alford and Major.

Residents at the building said Guerrero was well liked.

“He was a very good guy,” Pedro Bettincort said. “I don’t know what he was doing at 1:30 in the morning though. He died right here. I went in for help, but I couldn’t do anything.”

Other residents added that they often life in fear of nearby gangs.

    I can believe this Quintin is gone. He was like a father to me and he was my daughter godfather. He just called me last month and told me he was going to come to Delaware to visit us soon.

    Rest in peace.
    Love always


    Uncle Quentin you were loved by many, and will certainly be missed by many
    especially from the family. From the first introduction I was given, by my husband David I knew you had a very kind heart. The strong male bondage in the family will live on because you live in them, and in their hearts. We love you Uncle Quentin but GOD loves you more.

    I remember a time in 1980 when I was alone in a subway platform at 3am. Three men were slowly trying to encircle me, as I did a slow motion dance of defensively repositioning my body so none of them could get behind me. Nobody said anything out loud. Still, they just kept moving closer. So I was determined to throw whoever struck first onto the tracks. I was in my prime, and I had enough strength to do that. But then the train arrived. I got on. They did not. There is real danger in our streets.

    Once again, we witness a disply of the LOW LIFE black CULTURE!
    NO, not all blacks are low life.

    Once again we have members of a particular group perpetrating a heinous. deadly crime against ostensibly an innocent man and for what?. The question “what was he doing in the streets at that time?’ shouldn’t matter. In a civilized society(this one is deteriorating every day) one should be able to go anywhere, at anytime. R.I.P. sir, hopefully you’re in a place that’s better than the hell the rest of us has to try and endure. The Inner City/Urban areas of this country needs an enema! Badly! For those who thinks this type of wanton, senseless, incomprehensible violence is going to continue with repurcussions I strongly suggest you think again! For those who fail to recognize the clear, pervasive signs of the coming Tsunami, yoy’re doing it at your own peril.

    Uncle Quentin tell Nanny hi for me! If she didn’t just pass away this would have surely killed her. You was a great man and a strong role model for the males in your family and sadly to say one of the last, rest in peace uncle never quit! I love you LOVE MANDEE

    Arrests made at the scene, and no mugshots or perp IDs in a CBS story posted 12 hours later? They must be VIPerps.

    After midnight in those dangerous areas everybody should be suspicious and be asked his her whereabouts by the police. IF the police is patrolling those areas which I doubt. That should stop those nasty things from happening.

    Believe it or not Public Hangings in the 19th cedntury actually reduced crime.

    New York isfor young people That senior never stood a chance.

      One idiot punk (14-19 I guess) who works out at the gym would have no chance against a gang of seniors with canes. It’s time for neighborhood patrols and neighborhood crimewatch. This is not just an urban problem. It’s a suburban problem. When the gangs (who are going to age no matter what they do) hire family lawyers to manipulate local authorities to do nothing while people are being harrassed……brats come in all colors and from all ethnic groups and social levels. If you can’t be a decent parent like this poor man who was senselessly killed, go to the local ASPCA and get spayed before you propagate monsters who destroy nice people like this well loved family man. R.I.P. I think you lost a very valuable, good person and it’s time to take back your neighborhood. He is an angel in heaven now and will watch over you.
