New details were released about what led up to a shooting in Ft. Bend County last week that left a mother and her two daughters dead.

The shooting happened Friday afternoon on Remson Hollow Lane in the Katy area. According to Ft. Bend County investigators, Taylor Sheats, 22, and Madison Sheats, 17, were shot and killed by their mother, Christy Sheats, 42. A Fulshear police officer who responded to the shooting fatally shot Christy Sheats.

ABC affiliate KTRK-TV has confirmed that Monday was going to be Taylor Sheats' wedding day. On Facebook, her fiance's family member posted, "Y'all were a part of our family and that will never change. The greatest in-laws anyone could ever have, and the sweetest, most wholesome and caring girls in my life. I look up to ya'll so much. Y'all were a light in the midst of this crazy world. We will all love you two until the end of time."

KTRK also learned new details about what deputies say happened right before the shooting. According to investigators, Christy Sheats had pulled her daughters and husband, Jason, together for a family meeting.

During the meeting, investigators say Christy Sheats held up a gun and shot both girls.

Tayor was flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where she died.

Ft. Bend County Sheriff's Office said they responded to 14 calls for service at the residence since January 2012.
