Fight on Long Island campus injures six

Police said a fight between students and visitors at a college dorm in Old Brookville led to two men getting stabbed and four other people suffering injuries. "Blood and tissues and napkins, "described student Micki McCue.

That's what McCue woke up to Sunday morning inside Kings Hall, a dorm at CW Post.

That's where students say a large, violent fight broke out just before 3 a.m.

One 22-year-old senior who didn't want to be identified, said he was right across the green when everything went down.

"They ended up jumping one kid and all of a sudden people started getting stabbed and slashed up and stuff," explained the student.

Police say the "they" he is referring to are three young men and an 18-year-old girl who do not go to Post, but was attending an after party at the school.

A campus fashion show had wrapped up around 11:30 Saturday night.

Students say someone in that group asked a football player to step outside, because there was a problem.

They say when he did, the fists and knives started flying.

A second football player jumped into the fight, and both student athletes were stabbed in the back, amazingly one of them stumbled into a neighboring dorm.

"There was blood all over the place, blood on the walls, one of my friends, he lifted up his shirt and he had gashes," said the unidentified student.

The other group ended up with facial cuts and bruises.

"I was a little shaken up when she called, I live in panic with stuff like this," said Michele Mosca.

Mosca's daughter is a freshman student at C.W. Post.

After midnight, the school becomes a closed campus, but it's not clear if the non students involved in the fight were guests of kids who go to the college, or simply people who walked on campus for the fashion show earlier in the evening.

"Post is absolutely nothing like this, we are a tight knit community," said student Christie Cardinale.

None of the injuries was life threatening.

Police say they are still investigating.
