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

Baytown Lt. Dorris discusses fatal shooting of woman heard on video shouting 'I'm pregnant'

A Texas police officer fatally shot a woman who grabbed his Taser and used it against him, moments after the woman appears to say "I'm pregnant" in an altercation captured on video.

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. The release goes on to note that Turner was pronounced dead at that scene and that she was struck at least once.

In the video, the officer can be seen running and approaching the attacker as he tells him to "put the knife down, dude". The officer attempted to detain her, and a struggle ensued.

Family members were not able to confirm if Turner was pregnant at the time, and police will not be able to confirm until an autopsy is completed.

In the video, the woman is heard saying: "You're actually harassing me" and "I'm actually walking to my house".

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

The department has not released the names of the woman and officer involved.

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

Dorris has said that in addition to this bystander video, there is likely also video from the officer's bodycam.

The officer is now on administrative leave, in accordance with standard protocol.

Investigators want to talk to the person who filmed the shooting as they were a witness.

"It's unfortunate that somebody take a tragic incident like this and start posting it on social media", he said.

Residents told KPRC 2 that Turner was a resident of the apartment complex and frequently walked late at night to smoke cigarettes or walk her dogs. "That's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved".
