Police say they arrested the man who fatally shot a father of six in North Bellport on Father’s Day.
Police charged 22-year-old Timothy White, of North Bellport, in the killing of James Skinner, of Queens.
News 12 reported that the 50-year-old father was fatally wounded trying to break up a brawl that erupted outside a house on Doane Avenue.
Police say Skinner was at the house for a Father's Day party when a group of uninvited guests showed up and started a fight.

White is being held at the 5th Precinct. He is set to be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Central Islip.
