911: Parker County 911 Where is your emergency?

911: Okay, what's the emergency?

Caller: Uh, I just killed my mom and my sister.

911: What?

Caller: I just killed my mom and my sister.

911: You just killed your mother and your sister? How did you do that?

Caller: Uh, I shot them with a .22 revolver.

The call lasted for more than 20 minutes. The operator kept Evans on the line, alternately calming him down and encouraging him he would get help no matter what he claimed he had done.

Caller: I told my sister that my mom needed her. She was in her room and she came out of her room, uh, and I, I shot her. She rolled down the stairs and I shot her again. And then I went down and I shot my mom about maybe three or four times.

Caller: I thought it would be quick, you know? I didn't want them to feel any pain that's why I used the gun. It was like everything went wrong.

Evans left the weapon in his house, went outside with his hands raised and he was taken into custody.

Sheriff Larry Fowler says a gun was found on a kitchen table.

Drugs or alcohol are not suspected, and his deputies say they had never been called to the house before.

Jami Evans, 48, was found in an office. Her 15-year-old daughter was found in a downstairs foyer.

Nearby residents said they are shocked.

The suspect's father was reportedly out of town on business at the time of the killings.

Authorities said Evans will be charged with capital murder.

It's unknown whether he will be represented by a public defense attorney or a private lawyer.
