Two Boys, Ages 9 and 13, Are on Life Support After Their Mother Is Accused of Shooting Them

Authorities said Monday that two Pennsylvania boys were on life support after their mother shot them in the head while in bed at home in a wealthy Philadelphia suburb.

According to a spokesman for the Bucks County district attorney, the boys, who are 9 and 13, will remain in the hospital until their organs can be donated.

Authorities said their mother, Trinh Nguyen, 38, tried to shoot her neighbor in the head before fleeing in a white minivan Monday morning, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in local district court.

According to the district attorney’s office, Nguyen was apprehended around 11:30 a.m., about four hours after authorities responded to a 911 call from a neighbor.

NBC Philadelphia captured a video of her arrest, which showed her in what appeared to be pajamas.

Authorities charged Nguyen with three counts of attempted criminal homicide. She was being held without bail, according to court records.

It wasn’t immediately clear if she had hired a lawyer to represent her. One was not found in the court records.

According to the affidavit, authorities were called to a home in Upper Makefield Township shortly after 7 a.m. after a man reported that his neighbor, Nguyen, approached him with a box of photos as he was leaving to go to work.

According to the affidavit, Nguyen requested that he give the photos to her ex-husband, with whom the neighbor works.

When the neighbor turned around, Nguyen allegedly pointed a black revolver at his face and twice pulled the trigger. It claims that the gun did not fire.

According to the affidavit, the neighbor bear-hugged and disarmed Nguyen, who claimed the gun wasn’t loaded even though several rounds were found in the chamber.

After Nguyen fled and a neighbor reported her to the police, officers searched her home and discovered the two children.

“Upon entry, both boys were still alive but in their beds with gunshot wounds to their heads,” said Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub.
