On September 20, 2022, in Poolville, Texas, approximately 30 miles away from Fort Worth, Emma Brown, who was 12 years old, discharged a firearm into her father, Daniel Brown’s, abdomen at their residence. Tragically, Emma passed away at the hospital two days later as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to her head.
Prior to the terrifying event, the father, who managed to survive, and his daughter were grinning while they posed with a rifle and handguns in unison, as revealed by exclusive photographs acquired by DailyMail.Com.
The way in which they met remains uncertain, although it is unclear how they came together. The seventh grade student from Lufkin, Texas, along with another 12-year-old girl, had conspired to murder her entire family and pets.
Parker County District Attorney’s office confirmed that the second girl, who has not been identified, was charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
A spokesperson was unable to provide details of the sentence given to the girl because Texas state law protects the identity of juveniles charged with a crime.
On March 14, 2023, the case reached its ultimate resolution with the accusations being thoroughly pursued. The offense was not dropped, they included.
The attorney for the girl who survived did not reply to a DailyMail.Com inquiry for a statement.
Two days after shooting herself in the head, Brown died, confirming with the police that she had been planning to drive 230 miles to pick up her pal before driving to Georgia.
Brown fled on foot down the driveway, covering a distance of only a few hundred yards, after shooting herself in the head, as indicated by a dispatch call from the night of the event.
The emergency services worker can be heard mentioning ‘the daughter just shot him’ while it was known that she had been preparing for sleep in the master bedroom, having said ‘nothing’.
Officers subsequently found the schoolgirl reclining on the unpaved pathway, with a firearm beneath her physique.
Following the unfortunate incident, a ‘Keep Out’ sign was promptly erected along with the installation of a gate at the entrance of the premises, giving the impression of being the familial abode.
A source informed DailyMail.Com: ‘It’s a terrible tragedy. Her parents had no knowledge about the other girl, they still remain unaware.’
Her father also has an FFL license, meaning that he is legally able to store and sell firearms at the family home.
It is uncertain whether she accompanied her father, although Brown also participated in a fathers and daughters event at Peaster Elementary, where she was a student.
According to authorities, Daniel was discharged from the hospital shortly after the incident and is anticipated to fully recuperate.
Family members of Brown did not reply to numerous inquiries for comment when approached by DailyMail.Com.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s office stated that suicide was the cause of Brown’s death, and the autopsy report is currently sealed.
DailyMail.Com did not receive a response to a comment request from the Office of the Sheriff in Parker County and Peaster Elementary School.
Don Smelly, the Mayor of Peaster, stated that he was ‘incapable of providing a comment’ regarding the incident.
On September 22, at a nearby medical facility, the 12-year-old girl who was involved in the shooting occurrence in the northwestern region of Parker County on September 20, 2022, passed away due to her wounds, as stated by a representative from the Parker County Sheriff’s Office earlier.
The County Tarrant Medical Examiner’s Office performed an autopsy and ruled the cause of death as suicide by a gunshot to the head.
Her father, who was recently discharged from the hospital, was the victim of a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
The investigators from the Lufkin Sheriff’s office believe that a 12-year-old girl from Lufkin was involved in the planning of the shooting that took place last week. She has been taken into custody and charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
The reason behind why the girls desired to murder their families and escape still remains uncertain.
