Several news outlets are reporting that a Somers High School graduate was stabbed by the captain of the St. John's University men's lacrosse team on Tuesday, Oct. 22.
Justin Corpolongo, 23, SHS Class of 2014, is expected to survive the wounds, according to a report from the New York Post.
Justin and his brother, Alex Corpolongo, a 2013 graduate of Somers High School, were both standout players on the high school lacrosse team and went on to play at the college level with Justin at St. John's University and Alex at Stony Brook University.
Justin Corpolongo graduated from St. John's University in 2018.
According to media reporters, Corpolongo's roommate, Matthew Stockfeder, 21, stabbed the Somers graduate at an off-campus residence of some lacrosse players in Queens. Stockfeder was captain of the St. John's team but as of Friday, Oct. 25, no longer appeared on the roster.
Police reports obtained by the New York Post detail the fight in which Stockfeder stabbed a kitchen knife into Corpolongo's stomach, puncturing his small intestine. Stockfeder turned himself in on assault charges on Wednesday.
We reached out to the Corpolongo family, and we are awaiting comment.
