A Northern California man has been arrested on suspicion of homicide after police say he killed his mom amid a dispute over a video game headset, KTLA sister station KTXL in Sacramento reported.
Authorities responded to a home on River Valley Circle in Ceres around 9:50 p.m. Thursday and found the woman had been shot in the head, according to a statement from Ceres police.
During their investigation, police determined 28-year-old Matthew Nicholson had been in his bedroom playing video games when he became upset and started yelling.
During the argument, Nicholson broke his video game headset and blamed his mother.
After threatening to kill both his mother and father, police say Nicholson retrieved a handgun and used it to shoot two rounds into the wall, then shot his mother in the head.
