Officials previously stated that Sheats had called a "family meeting" in their living room with her husband, Jason, and daughters, Taylor and Madison. Davey also told me Christy Sheat's gun was a family treasure passed down from her great grandfather to "protect her family", but police say she used that very gun to kill her own daughters.
Both daughters died at the scene. Sheats refused orders to drop the gun and the officer fired one shot, killing Sheats.
During that meeting, Christy Sheats held up a gun and shot both girls, investigators reported.
In the first 911 call, which reportedly came from Madison's phone, Jason Sheats pleaded with his wife while their daughters screamed, according to KHOU. "Please, don't shoot. Please, I'm sorry". Another woman is heard saying, "I promise you, whatever you want", before the call is disconnected. "Christy wasn't insane. I don't know what could have made her snap". Taylor was shot inside the home but made it outside. She then went back inside for more ammo, he said.
The children and Jason Sheats ran outside, but Christy Sheats followed them out and shot her eldest daughter again. Espinosa earlier told People magazine the calls involved Christy Sheats' "mental crisis". Jason Sheats was not injured. The officers saw the woman shooting one of the girls in the street, police say.
"She's shot her again from the back".
Davey said the couple had marital problems and Christy Sheats had moved out for a while and had recently moved back in.
"I don't see them anymore", the caller says.
"By killing his children, Mr. Sheats will have to live the rest of his life with this frightful memory", said Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls.
Meanwhile, the victims' grandmother wrote on Facebook that Taylor had planned to marry Juan Sebastian Lugo, her longtime boyfriend, this week.
Wiley was aware of the tense situation at the Sheats' home because Taylor would talk to him about the constant arguments their parents had, and how her relationship with her mother was only becoming tenser through the years.
About a minute later, the neighbor tells 911 the woman has returned with more bullets. Her sister, Madison, would have been a senior at Seven Lakes High School this coming school year.
She had just reunited with Jason Sheats after the two separated for a time, according to the Washington Post.
The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office said Monday that police had answered 14 calls for service to the Sheats' residence since January 2012.
