This is so incredibly sad. Jason Sheats tried protecting his daughters from their gun-wielding mother before she shot and killed them Friday evening, June 24. Sadly, Christy Sheats was ‘out to kill,’ so there was no stopping her, a family friend recently revealed. Find out more here.
A family friend of Taylor and Madison Sheats, who were shot and killed by their Texas Mom, Christy Sheats, on Friday, June 24, recently revealed their father tried to protect them. Unfortunately, he failed because Christy was “out to kill.”
“[Jason] 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,’” Madison Davey told ABC News. “I always knew something would happen. I never thought she would do this. Christy was toxic for the family. She was mentally unstable.”
Christy apparently told her husband, “This is about punishing you,” during the shooting.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Christy hid the gun under a couch cushion as she called a family meeting on her husband’s birthday. When the family gathered, she started opening fire.
“He would do anything to protect [his daughters] and he tried to, but Christy was out to kill that day,” Davey added.
Madison said Jason, 45, was “the best dad ever.” She also said Madison, 17, and Taylor, 22, had such a close relationship. “I would hang out with him and watch ‘Drunk History,’ and he loved being around us. They were so funny — for sisters, you would think they would fight, but no. They loved each other a lot and were always laughing,” she said.
Our thoughts continue to go out to the Sheats family and their friends, as they deal with this heartbreaking situation.
