FORDHAM HEIGHTS, Bronx (PIX11) -- Friends gathered at the exact spot where 17-year-old Ricardo Romero collapsed on E. 182nd Street after being ambushed by two men who police say planned to rob him.

"He was a good kid, he didn't deserve to die like this," Diana Rodriguez, fight back tears, told PIX11.

Police believe it was a Friday night set up.

Ricardo thought he was going to meet a 17-year-old girl he met on Facebook in an apartment building here in Creston Avenue, instead he was stabbed in the chest and head outside the building in an alleyway and later died.

Police charged 19-year-old Christian Juarez with second-degree murder and robbery and 27-year-old Christopher Garcia with conspiracy.

Police still looking for another man involved in the attack.

While many at this vigil wanted to see the 17-year-old girl Romero befriended on Facebook be held accountable for his death, police say that girl, who has not been identified, will not be facing any charges.
