Family members were not able to confirm if Turner was pregnant at the time, and police will not be able to confirm until an autopsy is completed. 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.

Police say that's when a struggle ensued, forcing the officer to deploy his department issued taser at the woman.

Video footage of the incident shared on social media and viewed by Newsweek showed the woman saying, "You're actually harassing me" before being hit with the Taser.

Police claimed the woman snatched the officer's taser, which he had earlier used on her, and shot it towards his groin during the scuffle. Lt Dorris said the woman gained control of the stun gun, turning it back on the officer, forcing him to use his pistol and fire multiple rounds at the woman.

The officer's name has not been released, but Baytown police said he is an 11-year veteran of the department.

"She took (the Taser) from him and shot him". There's a struggle and then she's tased.

Meanwhile, a video of the shooting posted on Snapchat shows the woman screaming to the officer that she was being harassed and that she was also pregnant. The officer eventually gets the woman on the ground.

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

A spokeswoman for Burr declined to comment. "You've been there for hours and hours and nothing being alleged here changes the outcome of the Mueller investigation".

Witnesses said police administered CPR, but the woman died at the scene.

The officer nor the woman have been publicly identified. He is on paid administrative leave as authorities investigate.

Residents told KPRC 2 that Turner was a resident of the apartment complex and frequently walked late at night to smoke cigarettes or walk her dogs.

He had previous dealings with her because he was aware she had outstanding warrants, according to Lieutenant Dorris.

The lieutenant said police have since learned from the medical examiner's office in Harris County that Turner, who was 44 and black, was not pregnant. "Of course, our hearts go out to the family of the deceased as well as our officer".

Carr said she lives several apartments down from where the incident took place and that she witnessed the shooting.

"That's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved".
