16-Year-Old Boy Dies After Being Stabbed During Brawl Outside Strip Mall On Long Island The fight broke out between two groups of teenage boys Monday afternoon in the parking lot of a strip mall in Oceanside.

OCEANSIDE, N.Y. (WCBS 880) -- Nassau County's top cop is trying to set the record straight.

Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder says initial reports of what happened during and after a deadly after-school brawl in the parking lot of an Oceanside shopping plaza last week were not correct.

Initial reports from police were that more than 50 students watched and some recorded cellphone video of the fight instead of calling 911 and helping the mortally wounded teen.

But at a community meeting at the school Tuesday night, the commissioner said that only about 20 people watched the fight and 14 called 911. He said about two or three people recorded the crime.

The commissioner is also asking anyone with video of the deadly incident to turn it into the authorities.

Tyler Flach, 18, of Lido Beach, has been indicted on for the crime, but more arrests are likely. Flach pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and is being held without bail in protective custody.

The fight was apparently over a girl.

Morris' funeral will be held Saturday.
