Tasered woman shot dead by cop moments after yelling, 'I'm pregnant!'

The fight and shooting happened in the 1600 block of Garth Road at about 10:40 p.m., according to Lt. Steve Dorris with the Baytown Police Department.

Turner's sister, Antoinette, confirmed to KPRC that her relative was the dead woman. The Baytown Police Department says in a statement that the officer knew she had outstanding warrants and attempted to arrest her.

The woman - identified by family as grandmother-of-three Pamela Turner, 44 - was shown struggling to resist arrest for outstanding warrants outside an apartment complex in Baytown on Monday night, KPRC Click2Houston reported. "You're actually harassing me". Police will not confirm if Turner was pregnant until an autopsy is completed.

Dorris says the officer opened fire after the woman grabbed the officer's Taser and used it against him. In the 30-second footage, the woman can be heard telling the officer, "I'm actually walking to my house", and shouting, "I'm pregnant", before she's shot.

The officer then shot the woman multiple times.

As the officer keeps trying to arrest the woman, she flails her arms and yells, "I'm pregnant!"

Bayer to appeal $2 billion verdict in Roundup cancer lawsuit

A scuffle ensues. The woman keeps yelling "Why?" but the officer isn't heard answering.

The Harris County District Attorney's Office is investigating, and the department will conduct an internal review.

"It's unfortunate that someone takes a tragic incident like this and starts posting it on social media. We would often see her, see her walk her dog around", resident Raquelle Cuellar told local television news channel KTRK-TV Houston.

Paid administrative leave is "not a vacation", Dorris said. "It's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved". In the first five months of 2019, at least 323 people have been shot and killed by police in the United States.

The woman's name has not been released, as her family has not yet been informed.

Conversations about implicit bias and their deadly consequences have been a major part of the past decade, and video recordings of encounters between civilians and police have helped raise awareness of police use of force.
