Baytown officer fatally shot woman at apartment complex

A police officer in Texas has allegedly shot and killed a woman who may have reached for his taser during an altercation.

The officer-involved shooting incident unfolded at the Brixton Apartment complex in Baytown, Texas, at roughly 10:40 p.m. local time on Monday.

The December 2017 shooting was the first officer-involved shooting in the district where body camera video was available on the scene and showed the officer was within his right to use deadly force, according to Moore.

The officer knew the 45-year-old woman had outstanding warrants and started trying to arrest her, police said.

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

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

The struggle continued, and according to Baytown police, the woman "was able to gain control of the Taser and used it on the officer". Turner is heard yelling "I'm pregnant" as she struggles on the ground as the officers continue to wrestle her standing above her.

Police say the officer then pulled his duty weapon and fired several shots, hitting her at least once. Police said they will be withholding the woman's name until her family is notified.

Police are asking the person who shot the cell phone video to come forward to help with the investigation, Lt. Steve Dorris said. "Of course, our hearts go out to the families of the deceased as well as our officer". "It was a sad situation", Cuellar said.

"It's unfortunate that somebody takes a tragic incident like this and posts it on social media", Dorris said, according to KPRC. He has been placed on paid administrative leave. "That's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved".

Residents of the apartment complex told the station that Turner was harmless and that she typically just walked around the neighborhood with her pet.

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