FULSHEAR, TX --Several 911 calls have been released in the tragic murder of two girls who were shot and killed by their mother in Fort Bend County, Texas.
The chilling calls were placed inside the home as 42-year-old Christy Sheats fatally shot Taylor Sheats, 22, and Madison Sheats, 17.
In cooperation with our sister station ABC13, we are not publishing those calls. But we are posting the full 911 call from a neighbor. That neighbor initially told authorities that Taylor collapsed on the street and he saw Christy come outside with a gun.
LISTEN: Full 911 call from neighbor/witness of the shooting
Neighbor: "I don't see them anymore. But there's bullets. I can hear bullets. She's laying down on the floor now."
Dispatcher: "The female that was shooting is lying down? Yes."
Dispatcher: "Did she shoot herself?"
Neighbor: "I don't know. I don't know. I just see her down on the floor now. But I don't know what happened because I had to take my son to safety."
Deputies said a dispute lead up to the shooting.
Another neighbor, who said she was close to the family, told ABC13 the couple had recently reunited after being separated.
Madison Davey, a close family friend, says Madison and Taylor got caught in the middle of their parents' troubled marriage that cost them their lives.
"I always knew something would happen, but I never thought she would do this. Christy was toxic for the family. She was mentally unstable," Davey added.
