A Connecticut lacrosse player was fatally stabbed after a fight at an alcohol-fueled party, where three others were injured. 

James ‘Jimmy’ McGrath, 17, was found stabbed outside a Shelton home where a party had been in full swing. Police said it was not at the teen’s home, but it is unclear who owns the property.

Police arrived to the home around midnight and found ‘numerous teenagers’ outside the residence and ‘four stabbing victims,’ who were transferred to the hospital. 

The other three victims are in non-life threatening condition. 

No arrests have been made as of Tuesday and Shelton police told the New York Post the ‘investigation is currently ongoing.’

A nurse, who lives in the neighborhood, was the one to call 911 after she heard screaming, according to Fox 61. 

‘She walked out and she saw what was happening and walked over and gave the kid CPR before he passed away,’ her son Peter McCarthy recalled to Fox 61. 

His school, Fairfield Prep – an all-male institution, which cost $23,000 a year to attend – confirmed the junior’s death in a statement released on Monday, writing: ‘Jimmy was a beloved student and athlete on the football and lacrosse teams, and will forever be a member of the Prep Brotherhood.’ 

The school held a private vigil for the student-athlete on Sunday, where more than 1,000 people gather to honor his life. The school will also be offering grief counseling. 

‘In the coming days, students and faculty have the support of the school’s leadership team, Jesuit priests, campus ministers, counselors from Prep and Fairfield University to offer help while grieving this tragic loss,’ the school announced on Monday. 

A neighbor, who lives across from the house, said it was ‘sad to see what’s happening to our teenagers’ and said she felt ‘scared’ to send to kids to school when they of age. 

‘They are making so many wrong mistakes and decisions,’ Christina Louis-Fin, told FOX 61.

A fifth-grade parent Kathleen Davis told fox 61: ‘[My fifth-grader] crying and he is saying: “How could somebody be so angry, like how somebody be so angry that they would do that?” I don’t know what to tell my children. 

‘I feel like right now, all I can do is offer a prayer.’ 

Friends and family of the McGrath’s started a GoFundMe page to help his parents Kevin and Margaret pay for their son’s funeral. 

So far, the fundraiser has raised almost $85,000, far surpassing it’s $15,000 goal.
