He was collecting dragon balls for a wish to restore his youthfulness and get back to his prime.

King piccolo was projected formidable by Master roshi to everyone.

Evil Containment wave on king piccolo

As per master roshi killing, piccolo was not an option, and the only way he can be defeated was by sealing him in a jar using a technique called evil containment wave.

Master Mutaito teacher of Master Roshi, performed this technique at the cost of his life, and as master roshi was the last and only man who show this technique first hand, He was the only hope to perfect and perform this technique again.

So they started collecting dragon balls before king piccolo gets his hand on them to stop him from restoring his youth.

And when finally Roshi and piccolo meet on the battlefield, Master roshi tried performing the evil containment wave and died.

King Piccolo vs Master Roshi

After the fall of Master Roshi, King piccolo had all the dragon balls to summon the eternal dragon for a wish.

Even though there was tien Shinhan and Chiaotzu they failed to prevail over king piccolo to summon the dragon for a wish to restore his youth.

As soon as king piccolo was granted a wish to be restored to his prime.

He shot a laser beam from his mouth at Shenron and destroying him into pieces, resulting in the conversion of all dragon balls into stones

And as king piccolo has already taken care of all his enemies he killed the eternal dragon so no one could summon the dragon for a stupid wish and hinder his conquest of ruling planet earth.

Once he killed Shenron he started his mission with his youthful hands.

But Goku insisted Kami to bring back dragon to life so that he can revive his friends killed by king piccolo and his minions.

Kami said he can revive the eternal dragon only if Goku agrees to stay in kami’s lookout for the next 3 years and train to fight against piccolo junior.

Goku agreed.

No, as Shenron has just granted a wish he was weak and vulnerable for that moment, if King piccolo would have attacked him earlier scenario might differ.

Why did king piccolo kill Shenron – Conclusion

In my opinion, old king piccolo does not want to give any opening to his opponents.

as dragon balls can grant any wish and I will be active after one year of him making the wish, there is a possibility that Goku or matter of fact anyone can collect dragon balls and can ask of any wish that can hamper the rampage of king piccolo.

that can be the primary reason for him killing the eternal dragon Shenron.
