Angry Anderson’s Son Liam Anderson Killed In Sydney
A man is being questioned by police after the son of rock singer Angry Anderson was killed in a violent and bloody attack on Sydney's northern beaches.
It took several officers and the use of pepper spray to restrain a man police say they found forcefully beating 26-year-old Liam Anderson early on Sunday at Queenscliff.
An emergency services helicopter arrived at the scene to transport Mr Anderson to hospital, but he died as it was taking off, police said.
The 20-year-old alleged attacker was arrested at the scene and is assisting police with their inquiries at Manly Police Station.
Detective Inspector Michael Boutouridis described it as a "bloody" attack and said it was "quite possible" the alleged attacker was under the influence of drugs during the assault.
Police, who said the attack was targeted and the men were known to one another, are expecting to lay charges.
A statement on behalf of Angry Anderson was issued on Sunday afternoon, confirming the death of his son and asking the media and public to respect the family's privacy.
Friends of the 26-year-old gathered at the scene on Sunday afternoon laying flowers and handwritten notes.
