Affidavit: Teen surrendered peacefully after shootings

Posted: Updated:

Newly-released documents sheds more light on a horrific family double-murder in Parker County earlier this month.

According to the sheriff's department document, 17-year-old Jake Evans waited outside his home with his hands in the air for deputies to respond to his 911 call.

Evans is accused of shooting his mother, 47-year-old Jami Evans, and his 15-year-old sister Mallory to death with a .22 caliber handgun on around midnight on October 4.

In a chilling 911 call, Evans can be heard calmly explaining to the dispatcher what allegedly happened.

A probable cause affidavit says deputies handcuffed Evans without incident in the front yard, then put him in the back of a squad car while the lawmen went into the house.

There they found the lifeless bodies of Jami and Mallory, and the handgun on the kitchen table.

A search warrant affidavit shows investigators seized the gun, the clothes worn by the victims and the teen, and more trace evidence of the crime

On Thursday a Weatherford attorney was appointed to represent Evans in court, at least temporarily, according to the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

The teen being held without bond at the Parker County jail, facing a charge of capital murder.
