Watch complete video released by police below:
Police said the suspects chased the boy there, leaving him in critical condition.
Authorities said the incident is linked to the same gang believed to be responsible for the murder of the innocent 15-year-old Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz in front of a Bronx bodega Wednesday . Police said Guzman-Feliz was fatally slashed in the neck with a machete in what is believed to be a case of mistaken identity.
It is not known if the stabbings are connected.
One suspect, Ramon Paulino, has already been arrested and is facing federal charges including gang assault. Paulino's case will be handled by federal prosecutors, and several other suspects are still being sought.
Police said the stabbing was followed by a shooting that they believe was in retaliation.
