16-Yr-Old Stabbed To Death By 18-Yr-Old While Onlookers Record Instead of Helping

18-year-old, Tyler Flach has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of 16-year-old Khaseen Morris.

The incident occurred during a fight at a strip mall near Oceanside Highshool in Nassau County, New York on Monday.

Bystanders recorded and streamed the fight on their cell phones, however no one helped the 16-year-old who would lose his life that day.

Flach, who plead not guilty on Thursday, was taken into custody and is due back in court on Monday. His attorney, Edward Sapone, said there is more to the store than what is depicted in the videos and Flach maintains his innocence.

According to Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick, as many as 60-70 teenagers watched the assault and stabbing. Many used their cell phones to record and share the fight on social media but no one stepped in to help Khaseen, who was stabbed in the chest and died from his wounds after being taken to the hospital.

At a news conference on Tuesday, before any arrests had been made, Fitzpatrick said it was a “prearranged” fight over a “girl and a perception of who she might be dating or who she might be hanging with at this time.”

“That dispute boiled over here, where a group of six to seven males charged at the victim and his couple of friends, and during that melee, stabbed him,” Fitzpatrick said, standing in front of the strip mall where the fight took place.

He said several of those in the crowd have come forward with information.

Memorial services for Morris will be held on September 28, according to his sister.

A GoFundMe account has been set to assist the family with funeral expenses.

Those videos will help to assure a conviction. The kids were not trained to disarm a deranged killer, they did the right thing. Is the media and law enforcement disappointed that he didn’t injure or kill others? If one or more intervened, there could have been more names listed on the death list. I ask instead that ALL focus more on the murderer, and see to it he is put under the prison for 30+ years.

Oh, a lil white boy stabs and kills and a black child. Please, believe me, he will not be prosecuted they’re going to try and dig up dirt on the victim and make the trial about him so it will seem like it’s his fault. We’ve seen this time and time again. It’s a tragic situation for all involved. Prayers go out to the victim’s family.
