Turner was pronounced dead at the scene.
The fight and shooting happened in the 1600 block of Garth Road at about 10:40 p.m., according to Lt. Steve Dorris with the Baytown Police Department.
A police officer, who has not been identified, tried to arrest a woman who had outstanding warrants.
The news release also states that as the officer attempted to handcuff the woman, she gained control of his taser and used it on the officer. Moments later he fires five shots, killing her. There's a struggle and then she's tased.
The video, which was shared on Facebook and Snapchat messenger, shows the woman fighting with the Baytown police officer, according to KHOU.
As the officer keeps trying to arrest the woman, she flails her arms and yells, "I'm pregnant!"Читайте также: Farmers get impatient with Trump's trade war: 'This can't go on'
"I think it was very significant for us, because we had not realized, until that point, how clear and helpful the videotape was going to be", she told FOX7.
Garrett then says "no" and continues to stab the victim, forcing the officer to fire one shot at the suspect.
The police are also trying to locate the person who filmed the shooting and uploaded the content to social media.
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". "That's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved".
According to United States media, the officer, who has not been named, is an 11-year-old veteran of the Baytown Police Department He has been placed on paid administrative leave, Dorris said, adding that this is standard protocol.
"It's unfortunate that somebody takes a tragic incident like this and posts it on social media", he said. "Of course, our hearts go out to the family of the deceased as well as our officer". "We never want things to get to this".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
