People always talk about teenagers being unable to control their emotions, and that's exactly what happened with 16-year-old Danny Petric. Only when Petric got mad, he shot his parents in their Ohio home. His story was told on the latest episode of "Killer Teens."

It happened in 2007, and it was all about violent video games. When his parents decided he couldn't play them anymore. Petric shot and killed his mother and severely injured his father. Now 22, Danny talked about that day from prison.

"You just gradually push moral boundaries and values and priorities out the way. Eventually you don’t even know who you are anymore," he said. "I just wanted to play the video games ... I don’t think anything short of me getting what I wanted would’ve stopped me."

Petrick wishes he could go back and undo everything he did, and misses his mom. His father, Mark, survived the shooting and has forgiven his son. They talk every day while Petric serves a 23-year-to-life sentence. He will be up for parole in 2030.
