Two teens were stabbed — one fatally — at an out-of-control Fourth of July house party on Long Island early Thursday, according to police.
About 100 people poured into the home in New Cassel after details about the booze-filled holiday bash were posted on Instagram.
At one point, partygoers spilled outside at Roman Avenue and Costar Street and an argument broke out.
Police said the fight escalated and became violent, with someone squeezing off shots with a handgun. That’s when the 16-year-old boy and 19-year-old were stabbed.
Nassau County police responded to a call about the wild melee just after 1 a.m. and found the seriously injured 16-year-old with multiple stab wounds. He was taken to Nassau University Medical Center, where he died.
The older teen was in stable condition.
“This is not a random act. This is a targeted event and we’re still looking for help,” said Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick.
No weapons were recovered. Cops said they didn’t believe anyone was injured by the gunfire.
The revelers came from three different areas in Nassau County and followed each other on social media, Fitzpatrick said.
He said the homeowner could face charges.
No arrests have been made.
