An 18-year-old suspect has been arrested and charged in the stabbing death this week of Khaseen Morris, who died surrounded by a crowd of students taking cell phone video of the attack as he bled out on the ground.
Tyler Flach was charged with second-degree murder and was arraigned in court on Thursday, according to Nassau County police. He pleaded not guilty to killing Morris, a 16-year-old senior at Oceanside High School, during an after-school fight that broke out over a girl. Morris later died in a hospital.
As the boy lay in the parking lot of a strip mall pizzeria in Oceanside, N.Y. — hemorrhaging blood from a stab wound in the chest — police estimate somewhere between 50 and 70 kids stood by and failed to call for help. Many filmed the violent scene, uploading videos to social media sites.
"Kids stood here and didn't help Khaseen. They'd rather video this event," Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick told reporters at a news conference Tuesday. "They video'd his death instead of helping. So anyone who has video, come forward, [and] do the right thing for Khaseen."
