Woman fatally shot after using Houston-area officer's stun gun on him

Baytown police shoot pregnant woman

An investigation has been launched after a Baytown, Texas, police officer shot and killed a Black woman following a confrontation. Steve Dorris said the officer was patrolling an apartment complex and attempted to arrest the woman now identified as Pamela Shantay Turner.

The video posted on Snapchat shows the officer approaching the woman late Monday night. Police will not confirm if Turner was pregnant until an autopsy is completed.

The struggle continued, and according to Baytown police, the woman "was able to gain control of the Taser and used it on the officer".

"I'm walking! I'm actually walking to my house!" the woman screams at him.

Five shots ring out, killing her at the scene, with police saying at least one hit her in the face, according to The Dallas Morning News.

The shaky footage catches the cop Tasering her, with her on the ground getting shocked as she yells, "I'm pregnant!"

Officials say the officer is an 11-year veteran of the Baytown Police Department. "Of course, our hearts go out to the families of the deceased as well as our officer".

Dorris told reporters that police would like to interview the person who witnessed the shooting and made the video, though he was critical of the decision to post it to social media.

The officer has been place on paid administrative leave, which the department says is standard protocol.

"This was a very rare moment when the officer actually came upon the offense as it was being committed and captured part of the stabbings on camera", Travis County District Attorney Margaret Moore told FOX7. "We would often see her, see her walk her dog around".

"It's unfortunate that someone takes a tragic incident like this and starts posting it on social media", Dorris told KHOU. "It's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved, but that's the day and age we live in with social media". "It was a sad situation", Cuellar said.

Police also said the woman, whose name has not yet been released, is someone they've dealt with in the past.
