A Texas police officer fatally shot a woman who police said grabbed his Taser and used it against him, moments after she seemed to say "I'm pregnant" in an altercation captured on video. However, police say as the officer tased the woman, she then gained control of his taser and tried to fire it at the officer. The 45-year-old woman had prior encounters with the police and the officer knew she had outstanding warrants so he stopped to arrest her, according to a Facebook statement from the police department.
Pamela Turner, 44, was shot during a struggle with a police officer who was trying to arrest her over outstanding warrants.
"You're actually harassing me", the woman said in video of the incident.
After approaching her, a "struggle ensued" causing the officer to use his Taser. At that time, she can be heard yelling out to the officer that she was simply walking home.
Witnesses who saw the woman frequently walking her dog in the area said they believe she may have had mental issues. In the first five months of 2019, at least 323 people have been shot and killed by police in the United States.

Kang grabs first PGA Tour win at 159th attempt
Matt Every hits off the 10th fairway in the final round of the Byron Nelson golf tournament on Sunday, May 12, 2019, in Dallas. But Kang fired three birdies and bogey over the final nine holes of the third round to regain a three-shot lead.
Baytown, Texas police described Turner as the aggressor Monday night in the Brixton Apartments complex parking lot. The officer, an 11 year veteran with the department, did not suffer serious injuries.
As the officer keeps trying to arrest the woman, she flails her arms and yells, "I'm pregnant!" 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.
The shooting is also being investigated by officials with the Harris County District Attorney's Office.
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.
The officer tried to help Turner, but she was pronounced dead at the scene, Dorris said. It's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved. He was placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard protocol. "Of course, our hearts go out to the families of the deceased as well as our officer". "We owe it to everyone involved, including the decedent, to do a professional investigation", he said.
