Northern California: gamer shoots his mother over broken headset

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.

A little white before 10 in the evening, authorities received an emergency report of a woman being shot inside a residence. His 68-year-old mother Lydia came up to check on him and an argument erupted.

He blamed his mother for this, police said, and threatened to kill her and his father, identified by Fox 40 as Loren Nicolson.

The suspect's father eventually wrestled the gun away from his son, who then drove to a relative's house.

"I understand that he would've killed the father too, but the gun jammed", a family friend told FOX40.

The suspect fled in a vehicle to the home of a family member in Riverbank, where officers spotted his auto and stopped him. "The father grabbed the gun, emptied it".

After retreating to his room, Lydia Nicholson reportedly attempted to check on him, resulting in a re-ignition of the earlier argument and another shouting match, police reports indicate.

"Had so much compassion for people and just wanted to see the best in people at all times", said Autumn Nicholson, the 68-year-old's daughter.

Nicholson is being held without bail at Stanislaus County Jail.
