- Baytown police say an officer fatally shot a woman outside of an apartment complex.

The confrontation happened at 10:40 p.m. Monday in Baytown, Texas, near Houston.

The officer then contacted the woman and tried to arrest her, the release states, but the woman resisted the arrest. "You're actually harassing me".

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

Police say that's when a struggle ensued, forcing the officer to deploy his department issued taser at the woman. Turner is heard yelling "I'm pregnant" as she struggles on the ground as the officers continue to wrestle her standing above her.

"It appears that as the officer was then attempting to handcuff the female she was able to gain control of his Taser and turned it on the officer, Tasing the officer, which forced the officer to draw his duty weapon and fire multiple rounds at the female, striking her at least once", police said.

As the officer keeps trying to arrest the woman, she flails her arms and yells, "I'm pregnant!" The 45-year-old woman died at the scene.

Lieutenant Dorris said: "It's a tragic event for everybody involved".

The unidentified officer was patrolling the area when he saw the woman-identified by family as Pamela Turner-who he apparently recognized from "prior dealings".

Dorris told reporters that police would like to interview the person who witnessed the shooting and made the video, though he was critical of the decision to post it to social media. He was placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard protocol.

Dorris said the officer was wearing a body camera during the shooting, but authorities have not released the footage, since the investigation is ongoing.

"It's unfortunate that somebody take a tragic incident like this and start posting it on social media", he said. "It's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved. We would often see her, see her walk her dog around". "But that's the day and age we live in with social media". "It was a sad situation", Cuellar said.
