Prosecutors showed surveillance video of the 15-year-old being dragged out into a street in Belmont, where they say he was attacked with knives and a machete.

“I did find that really weird, but I think one of the main reasons for that is because the most blood was probably on the non-found machete. That was basically used to kill Junior.” said Junior’s family friend Jennifer Weisel.
Prosecutors say the suspects mistakenly thought Junior was a rival gang member.
