Pennsylvania woman Trinh Nguyen charged for shooting two sons in head while they slept

A crazed Pennsylvania mother allegedly shot her two sons in the head while they were asleep early Monday before trying to pump two bullets into a neighbor, a report said.

Trinh Nguyen, 38, was busted for the senseless violence after she fled the shooting scene in Newtown and drove to the parking lot of a nearby church, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported, citing prosecutors.

The mother had ingested narcotics in a failed suicide bid, the report said. She was hospitalized and later charged with three counts of attempted murder.

Nguyen’s boys, 9 and 13, were critically injured and were being kept on life support so their organs could be donated, the report said.

After allegedly shooting the children in their bedrooms, a neighbor who heard the gunfire found the woman sitting on the front lawn with a box of photos, Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub told reporters at a Monday press conference.

Nguyen asked the neighbor, identified as Gianni Melchiondo, 22, to deliver the pictures to her ex-husband, who works with the man.

After Melchiondo agreed, the troubled mother allegedly pulled out a black revolver, aimed it at the neighbor and pulled the trigger two times, according to Weintraub.

The gun did not fire and Melchiondo wrestled the weapon away from the woman.

After allegedly shooting the children, a neighbor who heard the gunfire from the house on 119 Timber Ridge Road, found the woman sitting on the front lawn.
