Wilmington mother accused of trying to kill son

Posted: Updated:
WILMINGTON, N.C. - A Wilmington mother is accused of trying to kill her own son.

Elisabeth Buckles Bello was charged with Attempted 1st Degree Murder and Assault with a Deadly Weapon with Intent to Kill Inflicting Serious Injury.

Deputies with the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office say they responded to a report of a shooting on Pond Drive back on November 30. The victim, Thomas Bello, told deputies his mother came to visit before he went out of town. He said while he was walking around talking with the woman, he heard a loud pop near his head. When he turned, he said his mother had a gun in her hand pointing it at him.

In the ensuing altercation, he grabbed the gun, ran downstairs and called 911. She fled the scene.

He was transported to Hanover Regional Medical Center for treatment. Bello's mother was later located at another son's residence, also on Pond Drive, and taken for medical attention as deputies said she did not seem coherent.

There's no word on what prompted the incident.

Bello's bond was set at $100,000 secure. She posted bond and was released from the New Hanover County Detention Facility.
