A Virgina couple reportedly tried to convince their teen daughter to end a relationship with a boyfriend whom the parents believed supported neo-Nazi views.

Now that boyfriend, 17, has been charged with the parents’ murders.

Authorities said that the teen shot and killed 48-year-old Scott Fricker and 43-year-old Buckley Kuhn-Fricker after they busted the teen in their 16-year-old daughter’s room around 5 a.m. Friday and tried to get him to leave.

According to the Washington Post, after the teen shot the parents, the boy shot himself in the head but managed to survive. Because he is considered a minor, his identity has not been revealed.

On December 17th, Kuhn-Fricker emailed the principal of the Fairfax County, Virginia private school that the daughter and her boyfriend were enrolled in, warning the principal about her concern regarding the boy’s beliefs.

In the email, she attached photos from the boy’s social media account in which he had retweeted messages celebrating Hitler, supporting Nazi book burnings, calling for “white revolution,” and making derogatory remarks about Jews.

“I would feel a bad reporting him if his online access was to be a normal teen, but he is a monster, and I have no pity for people like that,” the mother said in the email. “He made these choices. He is spreading hate.”

The girl’s family staged an intervention, brought her to a friend’s house in Washington, D.C., and tried to get her to stay away from him. The girl eventually admitted it was in her best interests to end the relationship.

The parents went to check in on their daughter Friday morning after hearing a sound. They found the boyfriend in their daughter’s room. The girl’s father yelled at the boy, told him to leave and never come back. The boy then pulled out a firearm and shot both parents before he turned the gun on himself.

Investigators reportedly haven’t determined a motive, but relatives and friends blamed it on “the couple’s struggle to keep hate out of their home.”

The teen has been charged with two counts of murder. He is listed in critical condition.

Neighbors laid flowers outside the residence on Saturday and said the entire community is feeling a profound loss.

“They seemed like people we would like to know better and they are gone. We all feel a big loss,” neighbor Danuta Moon said to FOX 5. “They were a new part of this community, but we all started to like them very much.”
