  • Baytown police shoot pregnant woman

An officer with Texas' Baytown Police Department came under fire this week after cellphone video surfaced showing him discharging his department-issued firearm five times during a confrontation with woman believed to be pregnant.

The victim's family members were not able to confirm if the woman was pregnant, Click 2 Houston reported.

Officials say the officer knew the 44-year-old woman had outstanding warrants and attempted to arrest her.

Footage circulating on social media shows the officer following the woman, who has not been identified, through the auto park as she tells him he is "harassing" her.

An officer confronts a woman in Baytown, Tex., before they wrestle over his taser, resulting in him shooting her to death. The woman, who is on the ground, appeared to reach towards the officer, and then he fired five shots.

The lieutenant said the officer, who is yet to be identified, was patrolling an apartment complex when he spotted the woman, who he'd dealt with before.

"She took (the Taser) from him and shot him".

"I'm pregnant!" the woman shouts repeatedly as she is pinned to the ground by an officer, in the footage captured on a mobile phone.

In the video, which was shot at night, it is not apparently clear that Turner got hold of the officer's taser. "Antoinette also said the officer was Turner's neighbor and she had previously complained about the officer harassing her", KPRC wrote.

"It's a tragic event for everybody involved, of course, our hearts go out to the family of the deceased as well as our officer", Lieutenant Dorris said. It is not known how many times she was shot, but she died at the scene, reports KHOU11. "We would often see her, see her walk her dog around", local resident Raquelle Cuellar told ABC 13.

According to a Baytown Police department spokesperson, Turner had outstanding warrants for her arrest.

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.

Although the bystander's video has been circulating on social media and was met with huge backlash, Dorris said the officer's body cam video won't be released just yet as the investigation continues.

"That's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved".
