TX Mom Shoots,Kills Her Daughters

Christy Sheats (42) w/ Daughters Taylor (22) & Madison (17)


A mother fatally shot her two daughters on a public street near Houston, Texas, on Friday afternoon, before she too was shot dead by police.

Around 5 p.m. local time, officers began receiving 911 calls about shots fired in the city of Fulshear, just to the west of Houston, the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook.

When they arrived on scene, they found Madison Sheats and her sister, Taylor, had been shot. One of the girls died on the street, but another was flown to a hospital in critical condition but could not be saved.


On Saturday, the Sheriff’s office identified the girls’ mother, Christy Sheats as the shooter.

“The armed shooter was also in the street and, after refusing to drop her weapon, was shot and killed by a Fulshear officer,” the Sheriff’s office said.

“Our officer was forced to take action,” the Fulshear Police Department wrote on Facebook, without identifying the officer involved. “He was not injured and no deputies were injured.”


“This was a tragic and unfortunate occurrence and we are deeply saddened by the results,” police said. “This has been a family disturbance,” Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls told reporters, “and it appears that the mother ended up shooting her two children.”

“It was a family argument that turned into a shooting,” Nehls told the Houston Chronicle. “But we’re still trying to put the pieces together.”

Dunedin, FL-

10-year-old Kassidie Rae McMillin has now died in the Florida hospital she was rushed to, after her mom Tina Marie Foster tragically shot her, then took her own life in their home. Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office  reported that the girl couldn’t overcome  a life-threatening injury she received. Police said the mother Tina Marie Foster, shot the child then she shot herself in the head. Foster’s husband and Kassidie’s stepfather William Foster, stumbled upon the bloody scene when he returned from work, then called 911.  To read more about the story please go here.

So sad when financial trouble can lead a mother to take her child’s life and her own. I wondered if someone couldn’t have saved this child? It was also reported her mom was facing trial from embezzling thousands of dollars over 2 -3 years from her employer. God, this is so sad and tragic and senseless.

Rest in Peace Kassidie Rae McMillin
