Woman fatally shot after using Houston-area officer's stun gun on him

Woman fatally shot after using Houston-area officer's stun gun on him”

A woman was reportedly shot and killed by a police officer in Texas moments after shouting "I'm pregnant".

The shooting happened late Monday in Baytown, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of Houston. The video shows Turner on the ground with the officer standing over her and yanking her arm when a tussle starts.

He then tried to used his Taser, but she knocked it out of his hand, grabbed it and used it on him.

Police say the officer then pulled his duty weapon and fired several shots, hitting her at least once.

Turner was on medication for mental illness and had previously complained about the officer's treatment of her, her sister told KPRC.

The officer, an 11-year veteran of the Baytown Police Department, has been placed on paid administrative leave, which Dorris said is "standard protocol" for such an incident.

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

The officer was also apparently wounded by his taser during the altercation.

During a video of the attack, the woman can be heard saying "I'm pregnant", according to KHOU-TV, a Houston area station that reviewed the footage.

Floyd Rubin, who shares two children with Turner, told CNN that police have not shared any details with his family about the shooting.

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

She yells "I'm pregnant", before sitting up, at which point he fires his gun five times.
