Nicholson allegedly broke the headset to his game, blamed his mom and threatened to kill her and his father.

Officers responded to the scene a little before 10 p.m.to investigate, and found a 68-year-old woman who had been shot in the head.

Nicholson started threatening his parents Lydia and Loren that he would kill them and grabbed a handgun and fired two rounds into the wall. The mother went up to check on him, but an argument between the two soon followed.

The Ceres Police Department is handling the investigation. "He came out yelling something about my headset is broken or something about the headset being broken and then grabbed a gun and started shooting", Sgt. Greg Yotsuya, with the Ceres Police Department told KCRA. Another bullet might have gone into the ceiling, the station reported. (Facebook) Lydia Nicholson cuddles a baby in a family photo.

A family companion told Fox40, "I comprehend that he would've murdered the father as well, however the weapon stuck".

It ended with the death of his mother, Lydia, according to investigators.
