Khaseem Morris , a 16-year-old boy, died after being stabbed during a fight at the doors of a pizzeria in a shopping center in Long Island, New York .
The teenager was attacked by a group of about six people for an alleged mess of skirts . The fight was attended by another 50 or 70 young people as spectators.

Police Lieutenant Stephen Fitzpatrick was responsible for reporting the terrible event. He acknowledged that the fight began with a girl and a misunderstanding of who he was dating.

"They were there and they didn't help Khaseem. They recorded his death instead of helping him, " Fitzpatrick said. Morrisiba accompanied by a friend, 17 , who also received numerous blows. It ended with a broken arm and a gap in the head, as indicated by the NBC . The videos would have helped identify the perpetrators, but police say it would have been preferable to help the victim.
This Wednesday the Long Island police confirmed the arrest of an 18-year-old boy related to the case. He is accused of murder for his alleged participation in the beating of the child.
According to several local media reports, the problems for Morris began when he accompanied a girl to his house on Sunday. That act of chivalry would have cost him his life because the girl would have told a former boyfriend to make him jealous.
