The Texas woman who was fatally shot by the police who arrived on the scene, is said to have revealed the aim of the senseless murders, which was reportedly to punish her husband.

A friend of the victims identified as Taylor and Madison Sheats, and their parents, Christy and Jason Sheats disclosed that the shooting had been an escalated version of the couples frequent fights.

A police officer is reported to have shot and killed longtime gun rights advocate Christy, 42, after they had arrived at the couple's home to find her shooting one of her daughter in the street.

The family friend, Madison Davey, tells KTRK-TV that the fight between the couple had turned deadly during Jason's birthday on Friday, June 24, 2016 at the family suburban home.

“He 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.

“I always knew something would happen. I never thought she would do this. Christy was toxic for the family. She was mentally unstable.”

Christy reportedly hid the gun under a coach, pulling it out to shoot her own daughters afetr she had demanded that her husband apologise for an arguement.

Christy is also reported to have spent some time in a mental facility over her mental instability.
