A dad on New York’s Long Island was stabbed to death by his son during a Zoom video talk with right around two dozen men who were taking an interest in the live stream.
Dwight Powers, 72, of Amityville, NY, was home on a Zoom visit set up for an Alcoholics Anonymous gathering with 20 other men Thursday when he was stabbed to death, supposedly by his child Thomas Scully-Powers, 32, police say.
The wounding at the Dixon Avenue home supposedly occurred around early afternoon, as the AA meeting was in progress, said Suffolk County Police say.
Police who were called to the home say the son addressed the entryway, hit it in their face, and fled through a window before he was looked a brief time up some other time, WABC reports.
Members On The Zoom Talk Saw His Son Hiding Something
Members on the Zoom talk initially saw something had turned out badly when they saw Powers fall during the feed, cops state.
The member, who wore a facial covering and didn’t give his name, says the man at that point set the bed sheets on the floor ‘as though he was concealing something.’
‘He found that individuals were seeing him through the camera, so he hid the camera,’ the member says.
It took the care group members around ten to 15 minutes to make sense of Powers’ name and area so they could call for help.
When The Officials Came Power Fled From The Scene
At the point when cops showed up at home, they state Scully-Powers purportedly addressed the entryway, hammered it shut, and made his departure through a window.
The suspect was looked about an hour up some other time at Ketcham Avenue and Cedar Street, state police. He was taken to a clinic in the wake of enduring minor injuries during his escape endeavor.
Father and child were the main two residents of the home, say cops.
Scully-Powers was taken to Suffolk County Police Headquarters and accused of murder in the second degree.
