Matthew Nicholson  Ceres Police Department

Officers in Ceres have arrested a man who allegedly shot and killed his own mother after an argument.

During their investigation, police determined 28-year-old Matthew Nicholson had been in his bedroom playing video games when he became upset and started yelling.

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. "He came out yelling something about, 'My headset is broken, '" police spokesman Greg Yotsuya told NBC affiliate KCRA. According to police reports, both parents were blamed - and threatened - resulting in Nicholson pointing to the gun to his mother before his father could relinquish him of his weapon. After the shooting, the suspect's 81-year-old father was reportedly able to disarm him.

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

Matthew then fled the scene, with police catching up to him near a relative's home and arresting him for homicide. "The father grabbed the gun, emptied it".
