He had gotten into an earlier argument with his 28-year-old stepdad, but the nature of the clash was not immediately known, police said.

The stepfather was questioned following Scott’s death. Cops could not confirm whether the questioning was ongoing Tuesday afternoon.

No charges have been filed, and it is unclear whether criminality is suspected.
