When officers arrived at the scene, Bright was on the front porch of the home along Maplewood Avenue in Ambridge. Bright reportedly had blood on her hands, arms and clothes.
In custody, Bright told police she shot one of the children while the victim was lying in bed. She told police she then went downstairs and pointed the gun at the other child and pulled the trigger, but said the gun didn’t fire, and after the child said, “Please don’t shoot, I’m gonna call the police,” Bright shot the child in the face. Bright told police the child wasn’t dead, so she got another gun and shot the victim in the head because she didn’t want her child to suffer.
