Texas Girl, 12, Shoots Father In Plot To Murder Families And Elope With Friend.
An unidentified 12-year-old girl from Texas shot her father as part of a plot with her friend to murder their families and run away from home, according to authorities.
Fox News reports the Parker County Sheriff’s Office as saying the girl and her friend hatched a plot to kill their family members and elope together to another state and that the planning took them weeks.
“They had allegedly plotted to kill their families and their pets before fleeing together to Georgia”, Fox News stated.
But the girl’s friend backed out of the plan, according to the sheriff’s office.
The story had it that Deputies responded to a shooting at a home in Weatherford, Texas, on Tuesday at about 11:30 p.m.
On getting to the scene, the girl was found lying in the street with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head and a handgun lying beneath her. Her father was found inside the home with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
Both the girl and her father were flown to the hospital. Their current conditions are unknown.
Investigators said it appeared like the girl shot her father and fled the scene before shooting herself.
She was planning to drive to Lufkin, Texas, to pick up her friend and then drive to Georgia.

The Parker County Sheriff’s Office has charged the friend with criminal conspiracy in the planning of the murder plot, according to the sheriff’s office.
The girls’ motives remain unclear. Lufkin Police are also investigating the incident.
“Due to the injuries, the age of the juveniles, and the sensitive case matter, information released regarding this case will be limited,” Parker County Sheriff Russ Authier said in a statement.
The sheriff’s office said it does not identify juvenile suspects and will not be releasing the identity of the adult victim in order to protect the children.
