Baytown Lt. Dorris discusses fatal shooting of woman heard on video shouting 'I'm pregnant'

"It is very early in the investigation however what detectives have learned thus far is one of our officers, an 11 year veteran with the department, was patrolling an apartment complex in the 1600 block of Garth Road when he came across a 45 year old female that he knew from previous encounters and knew she had outstanding warrants", the release says.

According to a Baytown Police department spokesperson, Turner had outstanding warrants for her arrest.

In the video, which is circulating on social media, Turner is heard saying "You're actually harassing me" and "I'm actually walking to my house" before falling to the ground.

According to Baytown PD Lt. Steve Dorris, as the officer was trying to handcuff the woman, she managed to get control of his taser and tase him with it. It does not acknowledge the video, but it does address what happened just before the officer fired "multiple rounds." .

According to police, the officer tried to deploy his stun gun at the woman during the struggle. The officer opened fire after Turner grabbed his Taser and struck him in the groin with it, shocking him, Dorris said.
