Taylor Sheats ran into the street and Christy Sheats followed, shooting Taylor again, police say.
Christy Sheats, a 42-year-old mom from the small town of Katy, Texas, shot and killed her two daughters. As an active Facebook user, Sheats was very vocal in expressing her distaste for Obama and for gun control.
“It shook me to the core”, John Hollis, Christy’s former employer at a tattoo removal shop, told KHOU.
Remember Cody Wilson, the founder of Defense Distributed who caused chaos previous year with his design for a 3D printed gun, The Liberator? She graduated from Lone Star College but wanted to return to school for a degree in art or teaching.
According to Davey, Jason told Christy “Just shoot yourself”. “We’ve had the preachers here and everything”, the young girls’ grandmother, Ann Sheats Wooten, told TIME on Tuesday before being overcome with emotion.
“This is not the Christy that I know – it’s just not”, she said.
Davey described Jason as “the best dad ever”.
“She just said that she was arguing with her mom”.
Maj. Chad Norvell of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office told Crimesider a family argument led to the shooting. It was a joyous time for the family, as Taylor Sheats was scheduled to marry her fiancé Juan Sebastian Lugo this week.
“The husband and wife weren’t getting along”, Norvell said.
“There’s a lady with a gun. she’s coming out of the house right now, there are two people shot outside”, the man says in the 8-minute call.
Officers said the daughters and their father managed to run out of the house, using the front door.
When police arrived, Christy, described as a “fantasist” by family friends, was still holding the.38 caliber handgun as her daughters lay lifeless in the road.
Local authorities have released the 911 calls from a Houston-area family in terror as Christy Sheats opened fire on her two daughters.
Since the shooting on Friday that ended the lives of three women (an officer fatally shot Christy Sheats in the street when she refused to relinquish her weapon), there has been a lot of chatter on social media about the case.
Their daughters – Madison Sheats, 17, and 22-year old Taylor – were both fatally injured.
“I always knew something would happen, but I never thought she would do this”, Ms Davey said. “I promise you whatever you want, I will”.
Taylor Sheats often illustrated scrapbooks and photo albums for his clients and always checked in to see if they were happy with the final products, he said.
That day, which also happened to be Jason’s birthday, was allegedly “tense” for the couple.
On her Facebook page, Christy Sheats often posted musings reflecting her love of God, family and guns. “Christy wasn’t insane. I don’t know what could have made her snap”.
