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 learned Matthew Nicholson, 28, had been in his bedroom playing video games when he became upset and started yelling. Nicholson then blamed her for the broken headset and threatened to kill both his mother and father. The 68-year-old victim was transported to an area hospital where she later died.

Nicholson grabbed a handgun from inside home and fired two rounds into a wall before turning the gun on his mother and shooting her in the head.

Nicholson's father wrestled the gun away from Nicholson, who got in a vehicle and drove to a relative's home in Riverbank, police said.
