When his mom, Lydia, came up to check on him, Nicholson accused her of sabotaging a headset worn during game use.
“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 said.
When police arrived, they found two bullets in the wall and one in the ceiling. A fourth bullet struck his mother in the head and killed her. source
Police say the suspect’s father eventually wrestled the gun away from his son.
Nicholson then ran out and began driving to a relative’s home in Riverbank.
Officers spotted the car and arrested Nicholson without incident.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends at this difficult time.
