Texas cop 'shoots unarmed pregnant woman' in shocking video

Facebook									A graphic video shows a police officer in Baytown Texas fatally shooting a woman who can be heard in the video saying she is pregnant

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

Turner was pronounced dead at the scene. The Baytown Police Department says in a statement that the officer knew she had outstanding warrants and attempted to arrest her.

She said her sister - who has two children in their 20s as well as three grandkids - was on medication for schizophrenia and previously complained that the officer, a neighbor, had harassed her. Police will not confirm if Turner was pregnant until an autopsy is completed.

"The female was able to get the officer's Taser away from him", he said, according to KPRC. In the 30-second footage, the woman can be heard telling the officer, "I'm actually walking to my house", and shouting, "I'm pregnant", before she's shot.

The video is dark, but it shows what appears to be her breaking free from the officer and moving toward the apartment buildings. According to local media, Dorris said the woman's family told police that she was not pregnant.

The department has not released the names of the woman and officer involved. "Of course, our hearts go out to the families of the deceased as well as our officer".

"This was a very rare moment when the officer actually came upon the offense as it was being committed and captured part of the stabbings on camera", Travis County District Attorney Margaret Moore told FOX7.


"It's unfortunate that somebody takes a tragic incident like this and posts it on social media", Dorris said. "It was a sad situation", Cuellar said. "That's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved". He was placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard protocol.

An Austin police officer is seen shooting at Aubrey Garrett after he continued to stab a woman in December 2017.

Residents told KPRC 2 that Turner was a resident of the apartment complex and frequently walked late at night to smoke cigarettes or walk her dogs.

Since 2015, The Washington Post has maintained a database of fatal police shootings in the United States.

Moments later he killed her.

Conversations about implicit bias and their deadly consequences have been a major part of the past decade, and video recordings of encounters between civilians and police have helped raise awareness of police use of force.
