Man shoots mother in the head over broken video-game 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.

Investigators with the Ceres Police Department said Matthew Nicholson, 28, was alone in his room late Thursday when he started yelling angrily after losing a video game.

Matthew Nicholson, 28, was playing video games in the bedroom of his Ceres, Calif., home on Wednesday night when an argument broke out with his mother Lydia Nicholson.

Police arrived to find a 68-year-old victim with a gunshot wound to the head.

Nicholson's father wrestled the gun away from the suspect, who then fled the scene.

Nicholson then retrieved a handgun from the home and fired two rounds into an inside wall and then shot his mother in the head, according a Modesto Bee report. "This house has always been open to friends and family and it's always been a family atmosphere".

Police responded to a call just before 10 p.m. that a woman had been allegedly shot inside a home.

Lydia Nicholson worked and volunteered in local schools. She was rushed to a hospital, where she later died of her injuries.

Nicholson drove off but was stopped in the town of Riverbank.

Nicholson was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail for homicide where he is being held without bail.
