BBC reports that the father was having a video chat via Zoom with 20 other participants when the incident happened. The son then jumped out of a window and fled in Long Island’s Amityville village

He was held within an hour after guests on calling the police for chat. The reason for the attack was still not clear.

Mr Scully-Powers later received a second-degree murder charge.

Suffolk County Police said in a statement that more details will be given once the suspect, who suffered minor injuries, has been treated and released from hospital.

Police said the incident had been alerted on Thursday afternoon after several participants of the chat noticed the man fall but it took them some time to locate the house because the guests did not know where Mr Powers lived.
