A Baytown, TX, officer fatally shot a woman Monday night as he attempted to arrest her on outstanding warrants at an apartment complex. After the officer's TASER did not subdue the woman, she scuffled with the officer and reportedly grabbed the officer's TASER and used it on him.

Video of the incident was recorded by a witness and posted on social media. In the video, the woman can be heard shouting "I'm pregnant" before she was shot, but a family member told KHOU 11 News that claim wasn't true and the woman had mental health issues.

The incident happened at about 10:40 p.m., according to Lt. Steve Dorris with the Baytown Police Department.

Lt. Dorris believes the officer involved was wearing a body camera, but that video will not immediately be released as the investigation continues.
