A police officer in Texas has allegedly shot and killed a woman who may have reached for his taser during an altercation.

The shooting happened late on Monday in Baytown, about 25 miles (40km) east of Houston.

"I'm pregnant!" the woman shouts repeatedly as she is pinned to the ground by an officer, in the footage captured on a mobile phone.

In the video, the officer can be seen running and approaching the attacker as he tells him to "put the knife down, dude". "You're actually harassing me". According to The Associated Press, police said that they will determine whether she was pregnant during the autopsy.

Authorities say that Turner resisted arrest, prompting the officer to use his Taser.

The officer drew his gun and fired multiple rounds at the woman, striking her at least once.

As the officer keeps trying to arrest the woman, she flails her arms and yells, "I'm pregnant!"

The officer, an 11-year veteran, was treated for minor injuries, police said.

Lieutenant Dorris said: "It's a tragic event for everybody involved". "Of course, our hearts go out to the family of the deceased as well as our officer".

Dorris told reporters that police would like to interview the person who witnessed the shooting and made the video, though he was critical of the decision to post it to social media.

The Baytown Police Department posted a statement regarding the fatal shooting to Facebook at 1:47 a.m. Tuesday. The Harris County District Attorney's Office is assisting in the investigation. The officer has been "placed on administrative leave", KPRC reported.

Dorris has said that in addition to this bystander video, there is likely also video from the officer's bodycam.

Witness video of the incident was widely circulated on social media overnight. "But that's the day and age we live in with social media".

"It was a sad situation".

Moments later he fires five shots.

Residents of the apartment complex told the station that Turner was harmless and that she typically just walked around the neighborhood with her pet.
