Man on Zoom call killed by son as others in meeting watched, police say – NBCNews.com

A man was fatally stabbed in front of virtual onlookers as he participated in a Zoom conference call Thursday afternoon, police on Long Island said.

Authorities received 911 calls from other participants on the call shortly after noon, the Suffolk County Police Department said in a statement.

Dwight Powers, 72, was in Amityville when he was fatally attacked. His son, 32-year-old Thomas Scully-Powers, has been arrested in the slaying.

The suspect fled, and at some point jumped out of a window, sustaining minor injuries, but was collared in the area about an hour later, police said.

Scully-Powers was hospitalized, according to the statement. He faces a charge of second-degree murder, Suffolk County police said.

Because he was still being treated, Scully-Powers did not yet have a court date, they said.
