Christy Sheats, 42, was shot and killed by police in Texas on Friday after she shot and killed her two daughters Taylor Sheats, 22, and Madison Sheats, 17. When officers arrived to the scene both daughters were discovered and were shot. One daughter was fatally wounded as the other was flown to the hospital in critical condition where she was later pronounced dead. Christy Sheats’ husband was unharmed and taken by the paramedics for evaluation. According to authorities, the father was there at the time of his daughters’ shootings. He left to seek help from the neighbors.

Authorities are saying that the matter is still under investigation, but the shooting appeared to be the climax of a family argument. Fort Bend County Sheriff, Troy Nehls, said

” It would be too premature to give you a motive as to why something like this took place. The best we can to pray for the father and husband so he can work through this.”

A neighbor who wanted to remain anonymous said, ”

Those parents are good. They are hard-working. Very good family. I do not know how this happened. So I cannot believe that.”

Austin Enke, a neighbor who also attended high school with one of the victims said that the incident was “just crazy” and “The neighborhood’s never seen this kind of thing before. It’s always quiet. This is surprising. They never showed any kind of thing that was wrong with them whatsoever.”

Very sad story. What are your thoughts? Comment below.
