New audio from a 911 call captures the horrifying moments when a mother fatally shot her two daughters.

Police say Christy Sheats, 42, killed her daughters Madison Sheats, 17, and Taylor Sheats, 22, at her Katy, Texas, home Friday. Christy called a family meeting, and once they gathered in the living room, opened fire. Her daughters and husband, Jason, 45, tried to flee as she continued shooting.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office released 911 audio from that day. In one recording, Madison called 911, The Houston Chronicle reports. In the confusion voices can be heard.

“Please! Forgive me! I’m sorry!” One daughter says.

“Please don’t shoot! I’m sorry!”

“Please don’t point that gun at us!”

A voice apparently belonging to Jason can be heard saying, “I promise you, whatever you want.”

A witness said Christy went back into the home, reloaded, and came outside to again shoot Taylor, who was in the street. The husband was not injured.

Christy reportedly had a history of mental illness. When police arrived, they fatally shot her when she refused to put down the gun.

“The armed shooter was also in the street and, after refusing to drop her weapon, was shot and killed by a Fulshear officer,” Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook.

Neighbors said the Friday shooting was actually Jason’s birthday. The Daily Mail reports Taylor was set to be married Monday.

Audio posted by the Huffington Post features 911 audio from a neighbor describing the violent incident.

“She’s going inside,” he says to the 911 operator. “She’s going inside the house now. Hopefully she’s not getting more bullets, because it looks like she’s going in for more bullets.”

“She’s coming back again. … Apparently she has bullets now … Oh, she shot her again. She shot her again.”
