  • Pamela Turner was shot by an unidentified Baytown Texas cop

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 incident unfolded Monday night, when the unnamed officer was patrolling a Baytown apartment complex and recognized the woman from past encounters.

Lt. Steve Dorris, with the Baytown Police Department, told KPRC, "During the course of the attempted arrest, the female began struggling with the officer, which forced the officer to deploy his Taser".

The encounter turned into a struggle between the two, with the woman falling to the ground before the officer used his Taser on her.

But as he was trying to arrest the woman, she managed to get hold of the stun gun and used it on the officer.

Police also said the woman, whose name has not yet been released, is someone they've dealt with in the past.

According to a database of fatal police shootings created by the Washington Post, at least 323 people in the U.S. have been shot and killed by police so far in 2019.

The officer tried to give aid to the woman immediately after the incident, however, she succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

"It's just sad - very sad - when you see somebody for the past six months walking around", Jennifer Sims said.

The officer, who is Hispanic and an 11-year veteran of the department, had previous dealings with Turner. According to The Associated Press, police said that they will determine whether she was pregnant during the autopsy.

Turner's sister, Antoinette, told the news station that the 44-year-old grandmother had complained about the officer-who was Turner's neighbor-harassing her.

The officer nor the woman have been publicly identified.

Raquelle Cuellar, a resident in the apartment complex, told ABC 13 that the woman was often spotted walking her dog in the area. "Our hearts go out to the families of the deceased, as well as our officer". He has been placed on paid administrative leave.

Once again, a shocking police shooting caught on video is causing outrage.

The police are also trying to locate the person who filmed the shooting and uploaded the content to social media. "It's extremely disrespectful to everybody involved but that's the day and age we live in with social media", he said.
