New York man kills father during Zoom conference call

A 32-year-old man from New York has been arrested and charged with murder after allegedly stabbing his father to death during a Zoom conference call, local officials say.

The incident happened just after noon on Thursday, when 72-year-old Dwight Powers was during a Zoom conference call from a home in Amityville on Long Island, according to Suffolk County police.

Police said Powers was participating in the video call when he was stabbed at 12:04 pm by his son, 32-year-old Thomas Scully-Powers. Several people watching called 911.

Scully-Powers fled the scene and was taken into custody a short time later, after which he was taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries sustained while jumping out of a window. He has since been charged with 2nd degree murder.

Details about a possible motif were not immediately known.
