A teen boy has died and another was still in serious condition Tuesday after they were stabbed and injured during an after-school brawl over a girl at a pizza shop on Long Island, police said.

Cops were called to Mario’s Pizzeria and Restaurant in Nassau County's Oceanside around 3:45 p.m. Monday after reports of a large fight; authorities say up to 70 teenagers had shown up. When cops arrived, they found 16-year-old Khaseen Morris stabbed in the chest and a 17-year-old who has suffered a broken arm and swelling to his head, according to Nassau County police.

Authorities say Morris, who was seen with the girl in cellphone video of the fight, did not have a weapon on him. Police did not identify the other teen and no arrests have been made in connection to the death and injuries.

There is a high school located just a few blocks away from the strip mall where the pizzeria is located, but it is not known if the victims were students there. Cops believe the fight may have broken out between groups of students from two different schools. 

Nassau County police said they were looked for “at least” one individual in connection to the stabbing.

An investigation is ongoing.
