A 16-year-old high school student fatally stabbed in a fight with other youths over a girl in an Oceanside strip mall lay dying on the sidewalk as dozens of teens recorded the stabbing on their smartphones instead of helping, Nassau police said Tuesday.
The slain boy, identified as Khaseen Morris, was stabbed once in the chest on Monday afternoon in the parking lot of the mall, where students from nearby Oceanside High School congregated before and after school. Morris, who would have turned 17 next month, died just before midnight Monday at South Nassau Communities Hospital, police said.
"Kids stood here and didn't help Khaseen," said Nassau Det. Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick, commanding officer of the department's Homicide Squad. "They'd rather video. They videoed his death instead of helping him."
