A 19-year-old man in Arizona was arrested this week after he allegedly filmed himself trying to kill his mother and father in preplanned executions because he was “upset over his upbringing.”

Jeremiah Estel Blair was taken into custody on Monday and charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, authorities announced.

According to a news release from the Chandler Police Department, officers at about 5:30 a.m. on the morning of Monday, May 13, responded to a report of a shooting at a residence in the Chandler Heights neighborhood near McQueen Road.

Upon arriving at the scene, first responders located two victims — an adult male and an adult female — each suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The victims were transported to a local hospital for treatment and were said to be “alert and stable” as of Tuesday.

An adult male — later identified as Blair — was arrested at the scene without incident and the victims were identified as his mother and father, though their names have not been released by authorities.

A probable cause affidavit obtained by Phoenix, Arizona CBS affiliate KTVK provided additional details about the shootings and Blair’s alleged motive behind the attack.

According to authorities, Blair was unarmed in the driveway of the home waiting for police to arrive where he surrendered and confessed to shooting his mother and father. Police reportedly wrote that Blair made at least one statement “about this day coming,” explaining that he was “upset over his upbringing” and was “not treated as he should have been as a child.”
