Naomi Bell arrested after 2 kids shot, 1 killed
Naomi Bell reportedly shot two children, killing one and critically injuring the other, in a suburban Connecticut home, police said Saturday. She was arrested after cops responded to her home.
The victims were the 15-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son of Naomi Bell, the Hartford Courant reported. Bell’s daughter was killed in the shooting. Bell was arrested on murder and attempted murder charges, a Connecticut State Police report said.
What we know so far
Police haven’t said what relationship, if any, Bell has to the children, aged 7 and 15. Plymouth school system Interim Superintendent Sherri Turner told families in a letter that the two victims were siblings and have a third, middle-school-age sibling who wasn’t home at the time of the shooting.
Bell lived with her husband, the two children who were victims of the shooting, and a third child, a boy who attends middle school, according to reports. Her husband was there.
He was apparently uninjured.
Police haven’t released the children’s names or said which of the two survived. Turner’s letter said the slain student was in high school, and the injured sibling is in elementary school.
Someone in the Main Street home called 911 on Friday evening, State Police Trooper First Class Christine Jeltema told reporters at a news conference.
Officers found the two children with gunshot wounds.
Naomi Bell Bail
Police who responded to the shooting at the Bell residence arrested Bell, 43, on charges of murder and attempted murder in connection with the incident. She was jailed in lieu of a $2.5 million bond.
“They were a great family and she was a great mom,” Victoria Nadolski, a neighbor of Bell’s, told WFSB-TV.
“I keep hoping it’s a nightmare and I’ll wake up and it wouldn’t have happened,” she said.
