While a 16-year-old Long Island student lay dying of a stab wound to the chest on Monday, about 50 other teenagers stood by and watched the boy bleed out, some recording his slow death on their phones, the police said.

The victim, Khaseen Morris, died in the hospital after the fight outside a strip mall in Oceanside, New York. Authorities are urging witnesses and the students who recorded the brawl to come forward and help identify suspects.

"They videoed his death instead of helping him," Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick of the Nassau County Police Department told reporters at a press conference Tuesday, adding: "This can't go on. Your friends are dying while you stand there and video it. That's egregious."

Fitzpatrick addressed the students who posted the videos on social media, asking them to come forward immediately and share any information they have.

"There's got to be about 50, 60, 70 kids here," he said. "We have a handful of kids that have come forward and have identified subjects involved in this. There is definitely more."

He added that "after I put handcuffs on you is not going to be the time" to come forward.

Though authorities haven't made any arrests, Fitzpatrick said that they had persons of interest they're looking for and that they believe the stabbing was a targeted incident.

Fitzpatrick and Morris' family said the brawl started over a girl.

Kedeemah Morris, Khaseen's older sister, told news outlets that the fight began after a 10th-grade girl asked Khaseen to walk her home.

Kedeemah told The New York Times that she suspected the girl was trying to make an ex-boyfriend jealous — and apparently it worked. Kedeemah said Khaseen told his family on Monday morning that he'd been threatened by the ex-boyfriend.

"My brother, he shrugged stuff like that off," Kedeemah told The Times. "He told the boy he didn't want his girlfriend, it was nothing like that, he just walked her home. The boy said he didn't care."

Kedeemah said her brother was a "sweet" and "funny" boy who loved skateboarding, drawing, and anime.

"He said, 'I'm friends with everyone,'" she told PIX11 News.

She added: "You guys took my brother away from me and my family. You took my mom's baby."

My view: I think the 50 teenagers who watched and filmed the attack should be jailed for not calling the ambulance and police immediately the attack started. So copycats won't repeat the same wicked act.
