The day before a shooting that would claim both of their lives, Deborah Chance posted a photo to her Facebook page and tagged Millie Chance with the quote: “The sunshine on my darkest days.”
The next day, at 11:49 a.m. Thursday, Lampasas police received a 911 call from a mobile phone in the 700 block of West North Avenue.
“The apparent female caller could only be heard to say before the call ended, ‘she’s got a gun’ and ‘my wife, I told her I wanted a divorce,’” according to a news release from Lampasas police.
Lampasas police secured the perimeter and tried to make contact with those inside the home, officers said.
A woman inside could be heard yelling for help, police said. Officers heard what sounded like two gun shots, seconds apart, police said.
Authorities forced their way into the front door and found Deborah Chance, 47, dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the head.
Millie Chance, 24, was found alive but also suffering from a gunshot wound to the head, according to police. She was airlifted to Baylor Scott & White Hospital in Temple, where she died Friday.
