South Carolina police say an argument over a Snapchat photo ended with the stabbing death of a Mount Pleasant teenager.

Authorities have charged 16-year-old Matthew Fischer with Murder and Possession of a Knife During the Commission of a Violent Felony in the stabbing death of 17-year-old Lucas Cavanaugh.

According to court documents, Fischer was visiting his girlfriend on Sunday night at her home when she received a Snapchat message on her iPod from 17-year-old Lucas Cavanaugh. Police say Fischer grabbed the iPod and exchanged words with Cavanaugh telling him "Come over" and "I'll kill you, man".

The affidavit states Cavanaugh then went to the home and got into a physical altercation with Fischer.
