FULSHEAR, Texas (AP) — A Texas sheriff's office says its officers had been called out multiple times in the past to the home of a mother who killed her two daughters, before she was fatally shot by police.
Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Caitilin Espinosa said Monday that the call outs were for several different reasons. Espinosa earlier told People magazine the calls involved Christy Sheats' "mental crisis."
A Facebook profile consistent with Sheats' biographical details included a pro-gun post, alongside posts about how much she loved members of her family.
Sheriff Troy Nehls said a family argument led to the shooting Friday evening in front of a home just outside the Houston suburb of Fulshear.
Nehls says the two daughters had already been shot when an officer arrived. The officer shot and killed the woman, who was apparently preparing to shoot one of the daughters again.
