RESTON, VA (WJLA/CNN) - The mother of a victim killed by her daughter’s boyfriend last week said the male teen suspect was influenced by neo-Nazi views.

Scott and Buckley Fricker were shot dead in their home last week, according to Fairfax County Police.

Police found the 17-year-old suspect with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The suspect is in critical condition and is expected to face murder charges.

Janet Kuhn said the teens had been dating since June.

"The reason I'm speaking out is because of the Nazi evil that was behind all this," said Kuhn, the mother of Buckley Fricker.

That influence, family members said, led to gunfire, and a 911 call from the Fricker's 16-year-old daughter.

In the minutes before the 911 call, the Frickers found their daughter in her bedroom with the suspect.

The parents told the boy to leave the house, a confrontation ensued, Kuhn said, and the teenaged boy shot the parents.

Fricker found retweets of messages on her daughter’s phone attributed to the boyfriend, “praising Hitler,” supporting Nazi book burnings, and calling for "white revolution," according to The Washington Post.

Kuhn said they also found "a picture of a Nazi officer with a swastika on his head."

The Frickers tried an intervention and talked about installing alarms, Kuhn said.

"I think of anything else they could have done,” Kuhn said. “Who could foresee of anything this horrible?"
