A Texas woman fatally shot her two young daughters while they were sleeping early Thursday morning. She did this hours after her husband had called 911, and reported that she was showing signs of suicidal behavior.
Sarah Nicole Henderson, 29, was arrested after her husband, Jacob Henderson, found the girls dead. The two girls ages 5 and 7, were found shot to death in the living room.
“She did try to shoot her husband. The gun malfunctioned. He took the pistol then realized the daughters had been shot,” an officer said. “We don’t have a motive at all. We’re still digging, trying to figure out what was going on at that house at the time.”
“She was asleep when I went to sleep last night. I woke up and she came in there said, ‘Babe, I just shot the kids.’ And I didn’t want to believe it. I went in there and they were dead,” Henderson said.

We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.”
