Horrific Video Shows Alleged Pregnant Woman Being Shot
In a shocking video being circulated online, a woman can be heard shouting ‘I’m pregnant’ before being shot by police.
A video of the altercation between the woman and police is believed to have been shot in Baytown, Texas.
The woman has not been identified but an investigation is underway.
Baytown Police Department has released few details about the incident - thought to have happened last night - and have not confirmed if the woman was actually pregnant.
They said "Baytown Detectives are on the scene of an Officer involved shooting in the 1600block of Garth Road.
"It is very early in the investigation however what detectives have learned thus far is on of our officers, an 11 year veteran with the department, was patrolling an apartment complex in the 1600 block of Garth Road when he came across a 45-year-old female that he knew from previous encounters and knew she had outstanding warrants.
"The officer contacted the female and attempted to arrest her at which time a struggle ensued, forcing the officer to deploy his department-issued Taser at the female.
"It appears that as the officer was then attempting to handcuff the female she was able to gain control of his Taster and turned it on the officer, Tasing the officer, which forced the officer to draw his duty weapon and fire multiple rounds at the female, striking her at least once.
