A teenager near New York City was stabbed to death in an attack witnessed by dozens of onlookers — some who rolled video of the slaying rather than help stop it, police said Tuesday.
Khaseen Morris, 16, and a friend were set upon by as many as a half-dozen people Monday in an after-school brawl in front of a pizzeria in a strip mall parking lot in Oceanside, a Long Island community about 30 miles east of Manhattan, authorities said.
Morris was stabbed in the chest, and a 17-year-old friend suffered a broken arm and swelling to his head, police said.
Authorities announced an arrest in the fatal stabbing on Wednesday. Tyler Flach, 18, was charged with murder in connection with the death of Morris, Nassau County police said in a statement. He will be arraigned Thursday.
The death of the teen was witnessed by dozens of onlookers — some who recorded the slaying rather than help stop it, police said Tuesday.
Nassau County Det. Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick told reporters the attack appears to have stemmed from a dispute over a girl "and the perception of who she might be dating or who she might be hanging with."
Investigators believe at least 60 teens had gathered around the parking lot to watch the confrontation, and some took cellphone video that was posted on social media.
“Kids stood here and didn’t help Khaseen,” Fitzpatrick said. “They’d rather video. They videoed his death instead of helping him.”
