The Hassan Razzaq, 19, was charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon, police said. Razzaq is accused of stabbing his father, Mohammad Razzaq, 56, in the neck.
An argument in the East 3rd Street home they shared, near Ditmas Avenue, took a turn for the worse about 10 p.m. Saturday, police said. Razzaq ran, police said, but they caught up with him a short time later.

City Hall, Uber push their agendas on cabs
The war of words between Uber and City Hall on a proposed black and livery car cap escalated during the weekend, while labor unions and civic groups prepared to push back against the app company today.
The City Council proposed two bills last month to limit new for-hire vehicles, as well as to study Uber's impact on traffic. Uber, which strongly opposes the bills, has been using its app to urge users to send messages to City Hall that say the legislation would worsen waits for passengers and take away job opportunities.
