Three plainclothes officers were on patrol in Jamaica in an unmarked car when they said they heard a single gunshot at around 10:32 p.m.

They responded to the residential intersection of 143th Street and 119th Avenue when they noticed 37-year-old Anthony Guyton with a loaded semi-automatic Hi-Point 9mm handgun in his right hand.

The cops stepped out of their car to approach Guyton while showing their shields. Guyton dropped the gun when the officers instructed him to, and he was arrested without any incident.

With Guyton secured, authorities said the police walked up to the car parked at the scene where they found his father's body.

It remained unclear what led up to the deadly dispute, and cops consider the investigation ongoing.

Guyton was charged with second-degree murder and two counts of criminal possession of a firearm.
