FULSHEAR, Texas — Police say a Houston-area woman fatally shot her two daughters before officers shot and killed her.

The incident happened about 5 p.m. Friday in front of a home just outside the Houston suburb of Fulshear. The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office identified the mother as 42-year-old Christy Sheats and her daughters as 22-year-old Taylor Sheats and 17-year-old Madison Sheats.

Sheriff Troy Nehls says the shooting apparently climaxed a family argument, but the reason for the argument remains unclear.

Nehls says the two younger women had already been shot when a Fulshear police officer arrived and saw the mother with a gun in her hand, apparently preparing to shoot one of her daughters again. The officer shot and killed the woman.

      So let me get his straight. Fox screws up an article but it’s somehow CNN/AP’s fault? And your argument to support this is that, in an act of journalistic integrity, Fox probably just copied and pasted this content without even checking it for errors first. But miraculously it’s still someone else’s fault. Amazing. Did you take a GOP master class in blame shifting at Trump University?

      It’s the AP and CNN, they just copy and paste. These are international news sites that we’re supposed to trust. All liberal all the time.

    The mother had recently posted the following on Facebook: “It would be horribly tragic if my ability to protect myself or my family were to be taken away, but that’s exactly what Democrats are determined to do by banning semi-automatic handguns.”

      Typical lying liberal spreading more lies.
      The Second Amendment protects lying liberals’ ability to exercise their First Amendment rights.
