Trinh Nguyen arrested in attempted homicide of sons in Upper Makefield

An Upper Makefield mother was charged with shooting and critically wounding her two sons while they lay in their beds early Monday morning, one day before the family was set to be evicted from their home, court documents show.

The boys, Council Rock School District students, are 13 and 10, and are not expected to survive their injuries as they were both shot in the head, authorities said.

Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub said at a news conference Monday afternoon that 38-year-old Trinh Nguyen shot her two sons and tried to shoot a neighbor ― her ex-husband’s nephew ― as he left for work around 7 am

She was arraigned Monday on four counts of felony, attempted homicide and one count of possessing an instrument of crime, which is a misdemeanor. She was denied bail and taken to Bucks County Corrections.
