Viral Video captures police shooting of Black woman who yells she’s pregnant

Texas officer fatally shoots woman heard claiming to be pregnant in video circulating social media

A shocking and violent video showing a suburban Houston police officer fatally shooting a Black woman who yelled "I'm pregnant" right before he fired at her in an attempt to arrest her for outstanding warrants.

Police said as the officer has handcuffing the woman, she was able to grab the Taser away from the officer and tased him. Then he shoots - rapidly, five times.

The lieutenant said the officer, who is yet to be identified, was patrolling an apartment complex when he spotted the woman, who he'd dealt with before. Moments later he fires five shots, killing her. She allegedly got control of the taser and used it on the officer.

The video posted on Snapchat shows the officer approaching the woman late Monday night. "I'm actually walking to my house!"

"It's a tragic event for everybody involved", Dorris said during an interview with local CBS affiliate KHOU. The officer, an 11 year veteran with the department, did not suffer serious injuries. According to The Associated Press, police said that they will determine whether she was pregnant during the autopsy.

In a text message, Lt. Dorris said Ms Turner was not pregnant.

Last month , it was revealed that Rami Malek ( Bohemian Rhapsody ) would be taking up the post of the movie's central villain. Helmed by Cary Fukunaga ( Maniac ), the film will open with James, not on active duty at MI6, kicking back in sunny Jamaica .

Turner's sister, Antoinette, told the news station that the 44-year-old grandmother had complained about the officer-who was Turner's neighbor-harassing her. He said "as a matter of practice", he keeps names of officers involved in such incidents private so the officer does not get "bombarded" with media requests.

Kevin Davis, a police detective and the author of a book on investigating police use of force, said it is impossible to make a proper assessment of Turner's shooting based only on the video and facts released so far. The Harris County District Attorney's Office is assisting in the investigation.

Investigators are trying to contact whoever recorded the video, because the person was a witness to the shooting, the lieutenant said.

According to a Baytown Police department spokesperson, Turner had outstanding warrants for her arrest. "It's extremely disrespectful to everybody involved but that's the day and age we live in with social media", he said.

Per department policy, the officer has been placed on three days of paid administrative leave, the Baytown reported. Our hearts go out to the family of the deceased.
