Juvenile shoots father, turns gun on herself in Parker County murder plot; both survive
The Parker County Sheriff’s Office has released additional information regarding the shooting that occurred late Tuesday near Poolville.
At around 11:30pm on Tuesday evening, multiple emergency responders from Parker County ESD 1 and 8 along with PCHD EMS and PCSO responded to a residence on Loggins Trail for reports of a shooting.
A Parker County deputy arrived to find a 12-year-old female laying in the roadway. She was suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Her father, a 38-year-old man, was located inside the residence with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. Both were treated by PCHD EMS and airlifted into Fort Worth via Air Evac Lifeteam helicopters.
Investigators have since determined that the juvenile female had plotted to kill her father and run away to Georgia with another juvenile female from Lufkin. The girl in Lufkin had also planned to murder her father, but did not go through with the plan.
Parker County Sheriff’s investigators have charged the Lufkin juvenile with criminal conspiracy in the planning of the murder plot.
“Due to the injuries, the age of the juveniles and the sensitive case matter, information released regarding this case will be limited,” said Sheriff Authier.
The incident remains under investigation.
