He faces a charge of second-degree murder, Suffolk County police said.

Dwight Powers, 72, was participating in an e-meeting via the Zoom video chat platform at approximately noon on Thursday when his son, Thomas Scully-Powers, emerged and began beating him, police in Long Island's Suffolk County said.

Police said they received several 911 calls from the other Zoom participants shortly after midday on Thursday.

The son fled out of a window after the attack but was apprehended almost an hour later in the area of Ketcham Avenue and Cedar Street, officials said. "It was terrible that they had to witness this".

A NY suburb was in shock Friday over a gruesome murder that saw a 32-year-old man stab and kill his father, who was attending a Zoom conference that included about 20 participants.

An unnamed witness told WABC that people watched as Scully-Powers stripped the sheets from a bed and laid them on the ground, as if to cover something.

Scully-Powers was arrested about an hour later, having gotten only about 1 mile away from the home.

Police say a number of people at the virtual gathering quickly called 911, but the response by officials was delayed when nobody could identify where Powers lived.

He was to be transported to a local hospital to receive treatment for the minor injuries that he sustained from jumping out of a window.

WABC reported that Scully-Powers answered the door, slammed it close upon seeing the police, ran upstairs, and then jumped from the second-story window.
