Police say woman killed by officer not pregnant
BAYTOWN, Texas (AP) - Police say a woman who was shot and killed by a Texas officer was not pregnant.
Pamela Turner can be heard yelling "I'm pregnant" at a Baytown police officer in a video that captured the Monday night shooting. Baytown Lt. Steve Dorris says the department has confirmed the 44-year-old Turner was not pregnant.
Dorris didn't elaborate on how police learned she was not pregnant. Autopsy results have not been released.
Police say the officer shot Turner after she used his own stun gun on him. Police have not released the officer's name, but say he is an 11-year veteran of the department who was trying to arrest Turner on outstanding warrants.
Video circulating on social media shows Turner and the officer struggling. Dorris says Turner struck the officer in the groin with his own Taser, shocking him, before he opened fire.
Investigators are trying to contact whoever took the video.
