CERES, CA – A 28-year-old man fatally shot his mother after blaming her for him breaking his own video game headset, according to police.

On Thursday night, Matthew Nicholson was in his bedroom at his parent’s house when his mother, 68-year-old Lydia Nicholson, went to check on him after hearing him yelling while playing a video game.

An argument ensued that lead to Nicholson breaking his gaming headset in frustration. Nicholson then blamed his mother for the broken headset and threatened to kill her and his father.

Nicholson followed through with one half of his threat when he grabbed a handgun and fired two shots into a wall before fatally shooting his mother in the head.

He then tried to kill his 81-year-father, but the gun reportedly jammed. Nicholson’s father took that opportunity to wrestle the gun out of his son’s hands and emptying it.

Nicholson fled to his sister’s home in a neighboring town but was apprehended by police during a traffic stop. He’s currently being without bail at Stanislaus County Jail.

According to police, this is the second time they have responded to a domestic disturbance at the home in the last six months.

Until last year, Nicholson worked as a paraprofessional at Sipherd Elementary School in Modesto, California. One of his friends stated that Nicholson was always well mannered/tempered while also hinting at a possible mental illness.
