The New Mexico teenager accused of killing his parents and three younger siblings was ‘involved heavily’ with violent video games prior the shooting, the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office said.
Nehemiah Griego, 15, who was ‘frustrated’ with his mother, was arrested Saturday following the deadly shootings at his home in a rural area southwest of Albuquerque where he lived with his family, Bernalillo County Sheriff Dan Houston said.
