Woman fatally shot after using Houston-area officer's stun gun on him

Share

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.

It happened around 10:30 p.m.in Baytown, about 26 miles east of Houston, when an officer patrolling an apartment complex saw the 45-year-old woman, whom he knew, and discovered she had outstanding warrants, police said.

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

The video shows the officer apparently trying to handcuff the woman, but she breaks free. She later says the officer is "harassing" her.

The officer then shot the woman multiple times.

Baytown Police detectives along with investigators from the Harris County District Attorney's Office are investigating the incident.

Texas officer is on paid administrative leave after shooting and killing a woman overnight, police said. The officer then fires his Taser stun gun and the woman slowly drops to the ground.

In a Facebook post, the Baytown Police Department said that the officer recognized the woman "from previous encounters".

Footage circulating on social media shows the officer following the woman, who has not been identified, through the vehicle park as she tells him he is "harassing" her. Dorris has said that in addition to this bystander video, there is likely also video from the officer's bodycam.

He tried to detain her, but she kept walking and refused to comply with his orders, police said. "Of course, our hearts go out to the family of the deceased as well as our officer".
