‘Please! Forgive me!’: 911 calls capture moments before Texas mother killed 2 daughters

FULSHEAR, Texas -Authorities say a Texas mother who fatally shot her daughters before being killed by police had called them and her husband to a family meeting.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office says Christy Sheats’ husband and two daughters, 22-year-old Taylor and 17-year-old Madison, joined her in the living room Friday. Authorities say during the meeting, Sheats shot both girls.

An officer who responded to the shooting saw the daughters lying in the street and Sheats with a gun in her hand. Sheats refused orders to drop the gun and the officer fired one shot, killing Sheats.

The sheriff’s office says it has responded to 14 calls at the house since January 2012. Some of the calls were over alarms, but the sheriff’s office wouldn’t describe the reasons for the other calls.

On Tuesday, authorities released 911 calls that capture the panic in the home of a Houston-area mother before she killed her two daughters, as well as in the home of a neighbour after the shootings.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office released recordings of two 911 calls from Christy Sheats’ home and one from a neighbour’s home. Sheats fatally shot her two daughters before an officer killed her.

In the first call, a woman is heard crying, “Please! Forgive me! Please! Don’t shoot!” After a scream, she cries, “Please! I’m sorry!” and “Please! Don’t point that gun at her!” Another woman is heard saying, “I promise you, whatever you want,” before the call is disconnected.

In the second call, a woman is heard saying, weakly, “She shot ’em.”

In the third call, a neighbour describes 17-year-old Madison Sheats and 22-year-old Taylor Sheats, apparently still alive, lying in the street in front of their house. The neighbour describes Christy Sheats kneeling over her eldest daughter and shooting her dead. Madison Sheats later died at a hospital.

An officer killed Christy Sheats after she refused demands to drop her gun.

A Facebook profile consistent with Sheats’ biographical details included a pro-gun post, alongside posts about how much she loved members of her family.
