Texas officer shoots woman who said she was pregnant: Latest updates

A dramatic confrontation between police and an unarmed woman, who said she was pregnant before she was shot dead by an officer, has been caught on camera.

A Texas police officer fatally shot a woman who claimed she was pregnant. In a Facebook post, the Baytown Police Department said that the officer recognized the woman "from previous encounters".

Baytown Police Lieutenant Steve Dorris said there was a struggle between the pair and the officer had been forced to use his Taser.

"You're actually harassing me", the woman can be heard saying in the video as the Taser is being used.

The woman is alleged to have taken the Taser from the officer while he was attempting to put handcuffs on her and used it against him. The woman, who is on the ground, appeared to reach towards the officer, and then he fired five shots.

Investigators have not released the name of the officer, but they said the woman's name was Pamela Shantay Turner. Suddenly, the officer pulls away from Turner, steps back and fires five gunshots. "(She) actually tased the officer, which forced the officer to draw his duty weapon and fire multiple rounds at the suspect".

In the video, which was shot at night, it is not apparently clear that Turner got hold of the officer's taser.

"It's a tragic event for everybody involved", he said.

After Florenzi missed the target again, Dzeko stepped up to make sure of the points in the second minute of stoppage time. It was Alessandro Florenzi and Edin Dzeko who scored the goals of the match in the 79th and 92nd minute.

It has not been confirmed whether she was pregnant and a post-mortem will be carried out to establish if she was.

"It's unfortunate that someone takes a tragic incident like this and starts posting it on social media", said Dorris. The Baytown Police Department said they will not be able to determine if the 45-year-old was pregnant until a full autopsy has been conducted.

The Harris County District Attorney's Office are assisting with the investigation.

According to police, the officer was patrolling the Brixton Apartments in Baytown, a midsize Texas city east of Houston, at 10:40 p.m., when he saw Turner.

Witnesses told the station that Turner was "not a bad person" and she would "just walk around, smoke her cigarettes and walk her dogs".

The officer is now on administrative leave.

"That's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved". "Of course, our hearts go out to the family of the deceased as well as our officer".
