CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — A woman has been charged with her sister’s murder after a shooting this morning in Carolina Beach.

Carolina Beach Police say the first calls came in just before 7:30 a.m. reporting shots fired in the 600 block of Carolina Beach Ave. S. Police Chief Ken Hinkle says when officers got to a condo there, they found a woman who was shot.

“Please send an ambulance quick. She’s been shot,” a 911 caller, who is also the suspect’s husband said.

The dispatcher asked the caller, “Where is the assailant?”

The caller continued on to say, “It’s my wife and it was an accident. She shot her sister by accident.”

Later on he told the dispatcher, “She’s shot in the chest. She’s shot in the chest. It looks like serious bleeding.”

At an afternoon news conference, District Attorney Ben David and Chief Hinkle said Joyce Goldberg has been charged with the second-degree murder of her sister Glenda Henry Bordeaux. She is in jail under $287,000 bond.

Police say Goldberg’s husband was also there when the shooting happened. They took him in for questioning, but later released him.

Investigators won’t say yet what may have led to the shooting.

Police say they believe the last murder in Carolina Beach happened back in 2003.

    I would say she is dead since it says her sister was charged with second degree murder.

  • 1492 says:

    “has been charged with the second-degree murder of her sister”

  • Guest1221 says:

    The answer to your question is in the first line of the story. Murder = Dead. Perhaps WECT hadn’t updated their story yet, since this one says “BREAKING NEWS”.

  • guesty says:

    She was shot and then died.

  • nofaithnlaw says:

    Is this person dead or alive? WWAY says she is dead, WECT says that she was shot.

  • Sammy says:

    >>Woman charged with sister’s murder

    She is still alive. They are just making the murder charge in case she dies

  • guesty says:

    Except for every one murder that happens in the suburbs, multiple murders happen in the projects.

  • Honest says:

    Well i guess all the Hodlums don’t stay in the projects or wear certain colors or have tattoos or maybe not all are even young black men,, maybe she was a black person disquise or maybe Race don’t even matter when it comes to family troubles, drugs, or murders, truth is bad things don’t discriminate it sometimes happen to some people whom makes bad choices,,.. so murder is murder why is she charged with second degree and others are charged with first… that’s my issue murder is murder and someone lost a family member.. so before we judge others by the color of there skin these things happen right in our own backyard,, not Creekwood, Jervay, HillCrest, or even Houston Moore it can happen anywhere….

    We must all be aware of what is going on in our own back yard.
    Hiding from whatever the truth is, does no good.
    The old saying is for every action there is a reaction.
    At first the action and the reaction are small but they both escalate and can lead to what some may call an over reaction.

    When they don’t stop violence the reaction can grow and lead to things like Stand Your Ground laws being passed or the new> Georgia lawmakers pass sweeping gun bill. Then the other side says:how did this happen?

    In my opinion single moms in poverty (white or black)many uneducated with their own problems having 3-4 kids is not going to turn out well for the kids. You can teach a child to read if you can’t read. You can’t get the few jobs we have when you don’t finish High School.

    We all have to face the truth and do our part.

    Why do u have to turn everything into a race issue . It was the first murder in cb in over a decade. It was 2nd degree because it was not premeditated. For instance if you do I drive by shooting on someone you are riding around looking for that individual with a gun with the intent on shooting him when u see him . Thats first degree. Face the facts most of Wilmington crime is in a 3 to 5 mile radius of downtown and it just so happens most if them are blacks . Please dont ask if im racist bc I am a first class African American citizen but FACTS ARE FACTS !!!!!!!!

    These women are my mother and my aunt. I have been warned not to read the horrible comments people post without knowledge. My Aunt Joyce has been suffering from paranoia since her diagnosis and treatment of cancer. She has had days of no sleep and had asked her sister (MY MOTHER) to come stay with her the last couple of nights. My Aunt and Uncle owned a gun but never did he think my aunt was a danger to herself or anyone else. This morning when my mother was leaving for work she first took their dog for a walk. She was shot upon reentering and there is no doubt that my aunt thought she was a danger because she had been suffering from paranoia worsening in the last few days. My mother, as my son reminded me, was doing what she ALWAYS does and helping others. My aunt should not be in jail. She should be in a mental facility. My Uncle and everyone that knew my aunt and mother are ALL VICTIMS here!! My mother is where she knew she would be when she took her last breath and my family and I will take comfort in that. We know we will see “Nana” again….

  • guestyI says:

    If she was that paranoid and delusional why were guns allowed to be easily accessable?? Paranoid from cancer treatment…never heard of that??
    People who own guns bare a responsibilty to make sure they don’t fall into the hands of criminals, mentally ill people and children.
    If she was as you say (mentally ill) you have my sympathy.
    It sounds like this tragedy was avoidable though.

    My prayers to you and your family Kristen- Hopefully the readers will understand today how painful words can be… most people believe that words can never hurt me.. but scripture tells me otherwise. James 3 reminds me to watch my mouth… because my words can hurt.

  • Barbara says:

    Very sad situation… sympathies to you and your family.

  • Barbara says:

    Kristen, I have known your Mom since 1969. She has always been a friend and I will miss her so much. She was just as others have said, a thoughtful, caring woman with a beautiful spirit. God’s grace to you all as you heal and carry on; just as she would want for you to do.

  • Frank Bomboino says:

    Your mom was a really good friend of my wife Gina and I she was a beautiful woman of God and she will be deeply missed and we are so sorry for your loss but if I know your mom shes talking Jesus ears off right now and got him laughing. God Bless You and your family.

  • lray says:

    i am so very sorry for the lost of your mother and the sickness of your aunt. no one can understand all there is about mental illness. you are so right your mother’s suffering has stopped and the healing of her family must now begin. may God be with you all. this time is about the ones who knew and love these women, everyone else keep your negative opinions to yourself.

  • Guestomfg says:

    It was an accident, I spoke to her before she had her coffee. Gun nuts show their stupidity again.

  • Guest of the Week says:

    Nonsense. It’d be “attempted murder” until she actually died.

  • zenobia says:

    What medication had she recently started. Was it Ambien like the Ft. Hood shooter?
