This is so heartbreaking. The surviving father of the tragic Sheats family Texas shooting has spoken out with three Facebook posts about his daughters, Madison, 17 and Taylor, 22, who were gunned down by their mother Christy. See Jason Sheats’ first messages right here.
Jason Sheats has broken his silence after witnessing his wife Christy, 42, slaughter their two daughters, Madison and Taylor, before police shot her when she refused to drop her loaded gun. He shared a series of photos and messages on his Facebook page on June 29, asking God for strength as he reels from the deaths of his girls.
Jason first updated his profile picture to be a heartbreaking photo collage of himself with his blonde daughters smiling and laughing. He followed that by making his cover photo a bible verse from Philippians 4:13 : “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” Finally he shared another variation of the quote a few minutes later. So sad.
As we previously reported, Christy shot her daughters Taylor and Madison in their living roon on June 24, during a family argument after Jason asked for a divorce and Madison was being reprimanded and grounded by her mother. Christy pulled a gun out from under the couch and shot both her daughters while they and their father Jason pleaded for her to stop. The wounded women fled to the street outside their Fulshear, TX suburb, where their mother pumped more bullets into their bodies.
Police received calls from locals and arrived on the scene, where they were forced to shoot Christy when she refused to drop her weapon. Sadly, Madison passed away in the street, while Taylor died in a hospital after being airlifted, according to Caitilin Espinosa, PIO Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.
In a chilling 911 tape that was released on June 28, Jason can be heard begging his wife not to kill. He pleaded with her to put down the gun, promising Christy “whatever [she wanted]” in exchange for sparing their lives. Sadly, his efforts were in vain.
