The graphic 911 calls detailing a Katy mother’s decision to kill her two daughters were released by police on Tuesday.
One was from 17-year-old Madison Sheats, who can be heard with her sister and father begging their mother, Christy Sheats, not to kill them. The other came from a neighbor across the street, who witnessed the fatal shootings after Christy chased her family out the door and killed her two daughters, Madison and 22-year-old Taylor Sheats, in the middle of the street. Their father, Jason, ran to the end of the cul-de-sac and was uninjured.
The first call from Madison is nearly inaudible, full of shrill screams, just after Christy pulled out the gun in a family meeting in the living room. Intermittently, voices can be heard begging, “Please don’t shoot us” and, “Please don’t point the gun at her,” and “Please forgive me—I’m sorry.” Toward the end, 45-year-old Jason pleads, “I promise you, whatever you want, I—” before another scream cuts him out.
