NYC: Father dead, son in custody after fight in Bronx apartment

A tense father-son standoff in the Bronx on Monday ended with the dad stabbed dead and his son in custody, police sources said.

How the early afternoon incident went down at an apartment on Metropolitan Ave. near Maple Drive in Parkchester was unclear Monday night.

“The father suffers from schizophrenia. The son called the police. The father attacked him. He ran to his room and locked the door,” said neighbor Mercedes Taveras, 57.

The dead man’s wife came home up in the middle of the confrontation, Taveras said.

“The mother said to me, I’m so embarrassed. My son is upstairs,’” Taveras said.
