Texas Mom, Christy Sheats, who was killed by an officer after they found her shooting at one of her daughters on the street, killed both girls just to punish her husband, a family friend told KTRK-TV.
The shooting that took place on Friday evening, started as a result of an argument Christy and her husband Jason Sheats had some days back.
The argument between the parents turned deadly on Jason Sheats’s birthday, Madison Davey,a family friend told the TV station.
He told Christy, ‘Just shoot yourself. Make it easy on all of us, just shoot yourself,’ and she said, ‘No, that’s not what this is about, this is about punishing you,’” Davey said.
“I always knew something would happen. I never thought she would do this. Christy was toxic for the family. She was mentally unstable.”
The “completely off-the-wall emotional” mom once spent time in a mental institution, Davey said.
“On Friday, she hid the gun under a couch and brought it out to fire on her own daughters at a family meeting she demanded because her husband refused to apologize for the argument, she said. He would do anything to protect them and he tried to, but Christy was out to kill that day,” Davey said.
