Sometimes bad people with evil in their hearts don’t think clearly. Such happened in Wilmington, NC as a man chased his own mother out of her home and into the home of a New Hanover County sheriff’s deputy. It all happened at high noon on a Wednesday.
The deputy, who was off duty taking care of her kids, shot the violent felon after he forced his way into her home. She shot him twice for good measure, after all, there’s no extra paperwork for that second shot. Then she called 9-1-1.
“This man done pushed his way in my house. I done shot him two times. Y’all need to get here now.”
The two shots took the fight right out of Bart Anthony Coniglio who decided to stop his attack and was later taken to the hospital.
WECT News has the story and some dramatic 9-1-1 recordings as well.
One day after a shooting at the home of a New Hanover County sheriff’s deputy, WECT is learning new details about what led to the incident. Neighbors say the deputy who fired the weapon is a mother of three, who was off-duty at home with her kids when a neighbor ran to her for help.
In a news release, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation says Bart Anthony Coniglio forcibly entered a family member’s home in the 4500 block of Barnards Landing Road in Wilmington around 12:42 p.m. Wednesday.
New Hanover County dispatch released the 911 calls Thursday.
The family member made the first 911 call from her home where she said her son was trying to break in her house.
“He’s breaking in my door right now,” she said before she ran out the front of the house.
The family member and a friend left the home and ran to a nearby neighbor’s home that happened to be the residence of a New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office deputy…
Conigilio is no stranger to law enforcement. According to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, the 40-year-old is a convicted felon who has a criminal record dating back to 2002 for offenses ranging from resisting an officer, to possession of controlled substances, to multiple DWI arrests, and embezzlement. He has not done any prison time in North Carolina.

As we all know, wise and prudent people home carry. Even in the middle of tranquil day. Because bad guys don’t make appointments to visit violence upon their victims.
And as Shannon Watts will never say out loud, but practices by hiring armed security: The only thing that stops bad people with evil in their hearts is a good guy with a gun.
