Baytown officer fatally shot woman at apartment complex

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

Lt Dorris said the woman gained control of the stun gun, turning it back on the officer, forcing him to use his pistol and fire multiple rounds at the woman. Moments later he fires five shots, killing her.

On Tuesday morning, the Baytown Police Department released a statement on Facebook about the shooting, referring to the officer as a 11-year veteran.

"The Harris County District Attorney's Office is on scene and assisting in the investigation, as is normal in these types of incidents", police said. 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.

Dorris said he believed the police officer was wearing a body cam, but that video will not immediately be released as the investigation continues. The two had previous dealings, but Dorris did not provide further details about the interactions or Turner's warrants.

Turner had three outstanding warrants - two for criminal mischief and one for assault resulting in bodily injury, according to court records.

CBS News quoted "Baytown Police Lt. Steve Dorris as saying that an - as yet unidentified male police officer, on patrol - saw a woman he had had prior encounters with".

On May 2, court records show, Turner was again accused of criminal mischief for damaging the back window of a woman's vehicle.

Turner was reportedly battling mental illness.

The woman, whom family members identified as Pamela Turner, resisted arrest so the officer used his Taser gun. She later says the officer is "harassing" her. "Why?" and then "I'm pregnant".

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

Witness video of the incident was widely circulated on social media overnight. Our hearts go out to the family of the deceased.

Shortly after, the fatal shots rang out. "I'm actually walking to my house!" And then you wake up and realize, 'Oh, my God.

"This is another black woman who has lost her life", said Ashton P. Woods, an activist with Black Lives Matter Houston.

The shooting happened late Monday at an apartment complex in Baytown, about 25 miles east of Houston. "It's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved, but that's the day and age we live in with social media".
