BRAWLEY — The parents of the former Imperial High teen who had allegedly threatened to shoot two classmates in February 2018 characterized him during his trial on Tuesday as a peaceful young adult who enjoyed playing violent video games.

The parents of 19-year-old of Karl Manaig also testified that they were unaware of their son ever having engaged in violent or threatening behavior before his arrest on Feb. 16, 2018, for allegedly making criminal threats resulting in death.
