16 year old shoots parents kills mom for halo 3
    #9455567 - 12/18/08 01:29 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

http://pspupdates.qj.net/16-year-old-shoots-parents-kills-mom-for-taking-away-his-Halo-3/pg/49/aid/127387

"16 year old Daniel Petric snuck out of his room one day in September 2007 to buy Halo 3 - without the knowledge of his dad. He had been playing the game with his friends for some time, and he wanted his own.

When he got back home, his folks caught him with the game and took it from him because it was too violent. His dad, Mark, a minister at New Life Assembly of God in Wellington, kept the game in a locked box where he also kept his 9mm. Yes, he's a holy man with a handgun.

Anyway, about a month later, on the 20th of October, 2007,Daniel hasn't quite gotten over theHalo-denying incident, so he got his dad's lockbox key to get the game...and found the gun next to it. Things went to hell after that.

According to Mark Petric's testimony, he was sitting on the couch when Daniel came up behind him and said, "Would you guys close your eyes? I have a surprise for you." Thinking it was a pleasant surprise from his son, his head suddenly went numb as blood poured from a gunshot wound. He later realized that his wife already laid dead on a nearby seat, shot in the head, arms, and chest.

Daniel even tried to frame his own dad by putting the gun into his hands. "Hey Dad, here's your gun. Take it," he said according to Mark.

Luckily, Mark's daughter and her husband were coming over to watch the Indians. After a quick 911 call, Mark was saved. Daniel tried to make a run for it, but was eventually taken by the Wellington police. He now stands trial for murder and attempted murder.

All for Halo 3. It makes me wonder how the guy's mind works, to be able to shoot your parents in cold blood all because of a game. This guy has serious issues. Violent video games, eh? Apparently, some people really can't handle it."

That's fucked up.

Well Halo 3 was a pretty damn good game....


Seriously though I think the kid was dealing with some deeper issues.

I swear to god after playing the flood missions I nearly killed my mom with a spoon when she wouldn't bring me a chocolate milk shake.

Call of Duty I could understand, but Halo 3?

This isn't the first time some kid has tried to kill his parents over a Halo game, I remember something on here a while ago about a kid hiring a hitman because his parents confiscated his XBox.

These parents obviously don't understand the importance of Halo

I stopped playing Halo3 mostly because the melee attack is so ghey... I'm suprised he didn't lunge 10 feet and kill them with one punch instead.

Funny, I googled it, and it's on almost every gamer site, however not on anything nationwide, how I thought it would be.

I think this has nothing to do with Halo 3 at all and the author is an ignorant tool for just assuming it does. What a joke, this isn't journalism.

Mentally healthy people do not, no matter how good it may be, kill people over a video game. Specially a month later. No fucking way.

I'm just assuming here, but the kids dad was a fucking minister, and the kid clearly disagreed with his father. I'm guessing his father was an overbearing prick and his mother was a powerless wench who let the father do w/e he wanted, or either she was a fucked up bible thumper too. Probably both.

I'm not defending the kid, he's clearly fucked up and he deserves to be punished. I certainly have sympathy for him though, and if I were to find out 10 years later what this kid did and he got away with it, I'm really not sure if I'd care.

Seems the game is not really important.  The way I read the article was he hadn't even/hardly played the game.  He found the gun next to the game then proceeded to shoot them.

What if his dad had locked a game of hungry hippo's next to his gun?

Apparently the kid shot them in response to them withholding the game.  Suggesting to me that not letting a male child have an outlet for natural aggression is more likely to be the motivation of his killing.

Agreed.  This "story" is just sensationalist speculation, nothing more.

Kid is full of Fail.  How do you screw the headshot up?  They had their eyes closed.  If he was playing Call of Duty with his friends... Murder/Suicide.

You could get shot point blank in the head and survive.

Ah true or not I believe the father needed to be silenced and the mom as well if she was a bible hugger. To bad the father didn't die.

A 16 year old can't play Halo, Halo's not even violent for fuck sakes.
