Police have confirmed that a woman who was shot and killed by a Texas police officer during a struggle over his taser was not pregnant.

Pamela Turner, 45, was fatally shot by the Baytown, Texas officer at a Houston-area apartment complex

The case drew national media attention and public scrutiny after Turner was heard insisting she was pregnant in a video that went viral on social media.

In the video, the officer, whom the Baytown Police Dept. won't name, is seen tasing Turner when she resists arrest in the parking lot of the apartments in Baytown.

Turner, who fell to the ground, yells "I'm pregnant," and "Why are you harassing me?."

Moments later, a flash is seen on the video, and the officer jumped back, drew his pistol and fired 5 times at Turner.

Police Lt. Steve Dorris said Tuesday that the officer shot Turner after she tased him in the groin with his own Taser. Dorris said Turner grabbed the cop's stun gun and used it on him.

Turner, who is Black, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The lieutenant said the medical examiner's office in Harris County has confirmed that Turner was not pregnant at the time of her death, according to The Sun-Sentinel.

Her family also confirmed she was not pregnant and she had a history of mental problems.

The officer, who is white, was placed on paid leave per department policy after an officer-involved shooting.

HLN News reports the officer had "some kind of past" history with Turner, in addition to knowing she was mentally ill.

Neighbors who witnessed the shooting are familiar with the officer, who is an 11-year-veteran with the Baytown police force. Witnesses told HLN they were very afraid to speak on camera.

    she said that to keep from being shot. sadly, it doesn't work.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Are police officers trained to deal with crazy people? Did he follow protocol? White crazy people usually are alive after the encounters with police.

  • EasyBreezy

    Of course. Why don't folks immediately get that? Why is the focus on the lie told? People, stop!

  • Dori Day

    So he was raising her. Is that supposed to make it better?

  • E Ethel Ballys

    Source? The DOJ data says per arrest blacks killed at the same rates as white.

  • xenaD

    Ok she wasn’t pregnant... and?

  • Topic Influencer

    I dont give a good gatdamn if she were pregnant or not. So lying qualifies him to shoot her ass FIVE TIMES? Fukk HLN for reporting it as such.

    also Sandra.... why are you using the Sun-Sentinel as a source for this write up? Its based in south Florida and this happened in Houston.

  • Dori Day

    If they are fighting he wouldn't get a chance to shoot at point blank range.She still yelled stop.

  • Dori Day

    Sounds like he tased her and shot her at point blank range.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    She was doing all she could to save her live because she knew he was going to kill her.. I think any police officer using deadly force on anybody without a weapon and of the opposite sex should be locked up on the scene and kept in jail until trail.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You may want to read the fine print in the DOJ data because it clearly states that not all police departments submit complete data to the feds.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    I would like to see a link to that data.

  • Vonn

    The DOJ is run by a bunch of white folks, protecting other white folks. Their data is bullsh!t.

  • the conscious one

    Pregnant or not this women was killed by a race solider and they put up her mugshot! They always try to make the victim seem less like a victim when they are black. The white media is racist and always on code with their propaganda.

  • Trey

    as proper protocol followed.....If she got ahold of the stun gun then what?

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I have E Ethel Ballys blocked for being a white supremacist troll.

  • Ms..N

    So a taser equates deadly force!! Smdh the extermination is real no matter black female,child or male!!

  • iWasteTime

    Meanwhile white supremacist are clashing with police with their guns in plain sight and everyone goes home at the end

  • http://www.instagram.com/yeuphonic @yeuphonic

    The piece of shit officer hunted her down. Drove around and saw her and “knew” she had outstanding warrants yet that info on what those warrants were is unavailable.
    He couldn’t even subdue a woman. He should be lynched.

  • free

    then you call for backup and then talk her down. you do know that they talk armed criminals down. particularly one that sitting on the ground with no hostages or imminent threat.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    That part! Those ranchers had their guns drawn on federal f*cking agents and they all went home without a damn scratch!

  • CardiB’sAbs

    He’s a weak coward.

  • Seldomseen

    5times.......

  • free

    and if he knew that much, he knew she wasn't right in the head, but yet proceeds to accost her on his own with no backup, "loses" his taser, and then while she's on the ground, i guess pointing the taser, instead of backing off and AGAIN calling for backup, realizes he could go ahead and shoot her without penalty because she's holding a taser.

  • Dr. P

    Well Sandra posted her mugshot too so (shrugs) but I agree with your comment

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Yeah let’s see if those towns filled with inbreds report their numbers.

  • free

    i just heard more of the video saying he attempted to give aid to her after he shot her lol. was he attempting to give her aid or slipping the taser in her hand?

  • BlockingTrollsAllYearLong

    I don't give a flying f_ck what she did! I don't care that she wasn't pregnant. I don't care, I don't care. I don't care. This stuff is retarded. WHY ARE YOU ON THE FORCE IF YOU CAN NOT SUBDUE A WOMAN?! Why are you on the police force if you cannot DIFFUSE a situation. These SOBs are really trying to push us to the brink.

  • BlockingTrollsAllYearLong

    They get tased in training! They know what she feels like. THEY DON'T DIE. As an officer, you are to diffuse the situation, take the criminal in, and allow them due process. Damn. Shooting 5 times is overkill.

  • free

    i'm starting to believe she doesn't have the taser. the witnesses are afraid to speak. i need to see the video where they don't stop it.

  • tintin

    This video was so hard to watch

    if any of you get a chance, watch when Montell Williams when he was on Breakfast Club many years ago. He talked about police departments changing how the men go into the field. Because these officers are angry. They have to deal with the same individual or area every day, then they train the new officers that in turn hate those people and eventually they get fed up and kill. He even mentioned how officers are the most arrested for domestic violence.. These police are getting worse and worse by the day and it's not right. Something needs to be done.

  • free

    i went to citizens police academy and one of the old head police guys was saying these younger policemen are coming back from these wars and dealing with that issue and are quicker to react in a more aggressive way than they did back in the day. in other words, they have baggage and they take it out on the criminal.

  • BlockingTrollsAllYearLong

    They say we have guns when we have cell phones or when we just have hands... F them. I don't think she tased him. He needed a reason to justify killing her. Period.

  • Jersey Girl

    agreed! The most outrageous part is that she was known by the PD to be schizophrenic and yet... It doesn't matter.. if your black its shoot to kill first, and maybe ask questions later. This is trauma on the psyche!

  • free

    i've never been tased but how can you be tased, pull your weapon and get off five shots in SECONDS?

  • free

    he knew she was gonna be around; probably harasses the shit out of her. i think there is something psychosexual about these white police men and black people, especially how they handle women.

  • Logan Roberts

    I'm pretty sure she probably said she was pregnant, hoping the coward pig would show some mercy.

  • tia

    She grabbed his taser--was she asking for a death sentence? Why would she do that? I'm just saying...That was not smart. We as Black folks should know these cops will shoot us in the blink of an eye. Even if we do comply, we still could die. I don't know, maybe we get caught up in the "heat of the moment." He didn't have to shoot her like a dog and they treat dogs better than us. And why didn't they get a female officer to come in as back up anyway? this cop was familiar with this victim and they had dealings before. He knew she was mentally challenged. Also, if the person doesn't shoot themselves, why can the cops apprehend a mass shooter, but shoot us--and we're unarmed? This narrative is old and it's almost dangerous to be a Black person. No matter our credentials/pedigree; if we get the wrong cop on the wrong day, it could very well be detrimental to us.

  • Dr. P

    Thank you for changing the picture Sandra

  • Dori Day

    She was on the ground standing over her.

  • SayWhatNow?

    5 shots? it took 5 fu*king shots?! In 11 years were you not properly trained on how to interact with a person with mental illness? and you knew her and your only solution was to kill her?

  • CardiB’sAbs

    She was crazy.

  • Russiancreme

    Control freaks. I have a friend who told me her mom was very controlling towards her and her sibs. She said that's why she always held a job as a correctional officer. Get paid to tell ppl when to eat, sleep, shower etc. These officers be on that. They live out in the burbs and drive to black communities everyday for an ego boost.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Why are they not revealing the cop that did this?! If he was following "proper protocol", why are they protecting him?!

  • Shamwow

    Soo sad and yes mental illness is real. It is true that many people who are in jail and or killed are often the mentally ill. It’s sometimes difficult to distinguish between who is or isn’t mentally ill and dangerous. But it doesn’t mean that she had to die because she grabbed a taser. I believe the media is behind this story trying to paint a picture that this woman was mentally ill and out of her mind. However, they still can’t explain how white people can do the same thing. Their mentally ill white people will kill and attack cops and innocent people. But are still able to be apprehended and not killed. Explain that.

  • Dori Day

    We are opening the door for bad officers if we continue to justify that kind of behavior.

  • Ep from Hp

    pregnant or not, she ain't deserve to die.

  • Dori Day

    He should have called for back up. What is he doing approaching her by himself if she posed a threat in the dark.

  • Shamwow

    My father became a cop in 95. He didn’t get in instantly because they had a psychological test that he failed. They said to him. What would you do if I told you I fvcked your mother? My father said um then I guess that’s your business. This man denied him because he was not visibly upset that he disrespected his mother?!???. My father was patient and could control his anger and they didn’t want that. He “should’ve been visibly upset.” Which was dumb in my opinion, because cops have guns and should control their temper. Soo my father got a lawyer and sued for discrimination. He won and got the job plus back pay if he was hired correctly. It’s sad because cops are poorly trained and it’s sad.

  • Dori Day

    Any one who justifies killing someone like that is evil.

  • free

    HE said she grabbed his taser and tased him; we don't really know that. i need to see how the fugg he got tased but was able to stay upright, pull a gun, and shoot her point blank (accurately) five times in literally seconds.

  • Dori Day

    She was not armed. He was. So the burden lies with him to take better safety precautions.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Thank you!

    This is an excellent perspective! I listened to debates on the radio about this incidence, and what you stated best describes the scenarios!

    I read how many cops have homicidal tendencies, and would easily be on the other side of the law! Add in soldiers becoming cops, it makes sense why all the killings, coupled with racism!

    Something has to be done!

  • Dori Day

    She walking a dog so she posed no threat. He realized she had warrants for arrest. Big dummy.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Sooo...lemme git this str8....this officer had previous encounters with Ms.Turner, and knew she had outstanding warrants. I’m sure he also knew she had mental health issues. So instead of him handling Ms Turner with protocol for a mentally disturbed person,he stands over her and shoots her five time. This wasn’t a murder....it was an Execution.

  • Alextra Ballard

    It’s funny how yew can take a white Mass Murder in handcuffs and str8 tew jail but shoot and kill a mentally disturbed black woman....interesting.

  • Ni Ni

    We need Mental Health institutions. People today dont have time to keep up with their crazy relatives like big mama did.

  • Ms..N

    So a taser equates deadly force!! Smdh the extermination is real no matter black female,child or male!!

    I know they say anything... "HE/THEY" say anything... I hope she didn't... even if she did tho, he didn't have to gun her down. They do us any kind of way.

    “They had some kind of past.” = they were fcking! And she probably threatened to turn him in.

    Body cams? Are the police wearing them in Texas?

  • Marlika

    Fools are running with a half ass story coming up with all types of opinions. Whom ever recorded the video only recorded part of it. That’s the problem people record what they want and post it on social media knowing people are going to respond without knowing the full story.??????
    This lady had mental issues, he judge ordered her to get mentally evaluated which she did not. We don’t know if the officer was justified in shooting her or not. I would’ve shot her ass as well reaching for my taser or gun. She could’ve taken him down with his own taser.

  • Ni Ni

    hnmmm ?

  • Anji

    A strong response of violence is the only thing the system will pay heed to. Stop praying and marching. Get off our knees and defend ourselves. I have.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    You bring up some interesting issues. Many people have relatives that need supervision! With people working they often fall through the cracks. More programs are needed.
    I vote we cut the NASA budget in 1/2 and spend it on Mental health.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    They buy him a burger first.

  • therealashland

    It also was confirmed she didn’t have open warrants so her harassment was not justified

  • ClaireHuxtable

    At close range ONE would have subdued/k1lled her. He didn't need 4 more.

  • free

    yeah, careful and high alert--confronting a mentally ill person (alleged 2- or 3-time criminal) in the black of night with no backup.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I felt from jump that she sounded crazy like mental health/drugs type of crazy. And that still doesnt rxplain the need to shoot her 5 times. 1 time in the leg because she’s resisting, i could swallow. This is disgusting. There are just states where minorities should stay out of. missouri texas hellabama and such. Just trash. But yall escort mass murderers to jail and buy them burgers.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Idgaf if she wasn’t pregnant. The chit was wrong.

    Plus, I don’t believe yt people. She could’ve been knocked up and they’re covering that up.

    The family said this lady and that cop were acquainted. Warrant or not, she was minding her business at her apartment complex.

  • therealashland

    Yeah her family’s attorney confirmed with the clerks office that there was never a warrant, thus meaning him stopping her was unlawful. And her criminal record consists of her only spending 2 days in jail. This is going to end badly for the police department.

    A tase to a mans groin could have deadly consequences.. Shyte, kicking a man in his groin could get a woman beat DOWN ?

    Exactly!!! Useless...they may as well not even bother to wear them if they can pick and choose when to use them

    They shut all of them down in Texas and the penitentiary is the new mental health housing facility. Cold world.

  • CookieMobster

    You are so right. All these folks hollering about this need to think what THEY would do in this situation, if they were the cop. I call tell ALL reading this a very VERY simple solution to this mess..... STOP RESISTING ARREST and this shit right here won't happen, and if... IF it does, then there is NO justification for the police actions and CASED CLOSED they can be easily prosecuted.... I wish folks would realize this.

  • KLove

    This is going to sound harsh, but.....first of all, if you Tase me, in the groin of all places, Im shooting your ass, plain and simple. At this point, my life is in danger (the heart can stop if you throw its electrical rhythms off, which im sure repeated electrical shocks can do). I dont care about your mental state, etc etc....you were lucid enough to grab for my taser and shoot it at me....FOH

  • KLove

    The ACLU pretty much sued every state and won, and in turn got all of the state-run mental hospitals shut down, and basically released all of the folks that were involuntarily committed, for their own safety and that of society at large, right back into the streets.

  • KLove

    apples and oranges

  • KLove

    did you miss the part where she grabbed his taser and shot him in the groin with it?....at that point his life was in danger, and frankly i wouldve done anything to protect myself and mitigate the threat

  • KLove

    when cops get taser training, they have to get tased...that said...they probably go through scenarios where someone grabs hold of their taser, and shoots them with it, and they can still maintain enough control to draw their weapon

  • Sircaput

    Mental illness or not, there was no justification in that Cop shooting her. She grabbed at the taser because she didn't want it being used on her which there was no reason to do so. Do you know how many times I used to try and grab the belt when I was getting my ass whooped, my dad and mom didn't pull out a gun and kill me because of it. That was a woman and that cop was a pussy and any cop that justifies that murder is a pussy too!Even though she wasn't pregnant the cop still showed no type of empathy when he heard her say it therefore making him determined to take two lives!

  • Waya Hedia

    Yeah.. don't take the cop's tazer and shoot him with it.

  • Waya Hedia

    NO, it doesn't mean stopping her was illegal at all. Cops can stop anyone.

  • OvertheMississippi

    It the men and women in blue are so afraid and cannot fight, they need to stay off the force. If you scare, go to church!! They just be forced to learn hand-to-hand combat.

    My coworkers boyfriend got kicked in his groin and his testicles swole up to the size of grapefruits.. that gotta be pretty dangerous

  • 2gr8ful

    So just because she was’t pregnant that justifies this? Five shots though. After you shot one, two is the taser still threatening your life???

    His life was in danger... couldn’t use of the taser also pose a risk to the lives of offenders then?

  • Malai

    BINGO ?

    It can, but its an alternative to flat out having to shoot someone

  • Malai

    Well the fact that she was telling him she was pregnant and he shot her 5 TIMES ANYWAY makes this 10 TIMES worse! Lie or not, he is in the wrong!

    That is RIGHT. They push folks into the damn subway tracks for no reason. You must be very careful!

  • E Ethel Ballys

    The Washington Post DB shows gives you the death rates by cops. The DOJ provides the arrest rates by race. It’s an easy ratio to calculate. Deaths/Arrests. Why would the DOJ lie and say more blacks are being arrested than truly are?

  • Surprise2017

    I was thinking the same thing. It wasn't recorded from the beginning so we don't know what transpired before hand. Still doesn't warrant 5 bullet holes..

  • Jethro

    So what she wasn't pregnant?

  • MJ

    Agreed..this is disgusting. I’m the first one to call for folks to take responsibility for their own actions and consider consequences when dealing with police, but this woman has mental issues and he went in knowing that. He should be charged and convicted of homicide, but won’t likely happen

  • therealashland

    Says what law? You need a REASONABLE suspicion to detain someone and PROBABLE CAUSE to arrest someone, he CLEARLY had neither of those.

  • therealashland

    If that is the case, that is even more reason to wait for back up, and have a MORE TRAINED officer or individual deal with her, treating her like a violent criminal when she has mental illness isn’t justice for anyone.

  • Joy King

    I get why she said she was pregnant. She wanted to be left alone and hoped the police officer would let her be, thinking a pregnant woman was harmless. Unfortunately it didn’t go as planned. Very sad.

  • Lynette Collins

    Such incidents are hardly ever recorded from the beginning because some are out and about just minding their business, strolling through to ferry home and they see some nonsense bout to pop off AND then decide to record. But I agree, we shouldn't judge until all evidence had been picked through and witnesses speak up.

  • Marlika

    Yes people are always saying what they would do if something if they were in certain situations. I remember when I was sexually assaulted in high school. When I heard about the idiot who was doing this I used to say “ if he touches me I’ll do this to him” but when it did happened. I froze and panic, then I tried to take his head off but he ran. We always think we’re able to handle certain situations.

  • Marlika

    Anything is possible with them. They act all types of crazy walking around NYC and on the subway. I’m always ready to pepper spray one of them but still.

  • Marlika

    Have you ever pulled the trigger on a 9 mm?? Police Officer across the country have a standard 9mm.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    "After she tased him in the groin with his own Taser." thats grounds to be fired, I know he was getting roasted back at the precinct.

  • PrettyMeka08

    Imagine if those ranchers had been black men standing their ground?

  • Applebootay

    I didn't grab shat....I just took my azz whooping...I was too afraid that she would beat me worse if I did....however, that cop should be charged with murder...he literally had to jump off her bag back, pull out his gun and fire 5 times...while she was laying on the ground...because once he got up, she didn't go after him...he couldve took out his pepper spray or billy club....but that is excessive use and unnecessary

  • Applebootay

    But we cant give her the same justification for being tased? So her reflexes jumped in and she grabbed it...and it certainly doesn't look like she tased him in the groin on purpose....it appears he got tased in the struggle.....

  • Applebootay

    I saw the entire struggle with the taser from beginning to end with him actually shooting her...this radical black pather site posted it....1) they both lived at that same apartment complex and he knew her was well aware of who she was 2) she grabbed the taser from him and a struggle ensued...it was dark but you certainly couldn't ascertain if she legit tased him in the groin...it did however appear that he was tased in the struggle....he jumped off her, backed back, pulled out his gun and fired 5 times, while she was laying on the ground...after he jumped off her she didn't move...he could've use pepper spray, billy club anything...she didn't lunge for him or nothing...I've seen enough to make an educated opinion...that that white azz cop is lying and full of shat...and it didn't look REMOTELY justified....IMHO

  • Applebootay

    I saw the video from before she grabbed his taser after he tased her more than once until the time he jumped off her ...repeat ..jumped off her and pulled out his gun and fire...she didn't lunge back, she didn't try to even get up at that point...I don't know what video yall saw but that she was sinfully unjustifiable IMHO

  • Applebootay

    News media confirmed that He had one on but they aren't releasing the footage yet....

  • Applebootay

    I don't know about that but they lived in the same apartment complex...he definitely knew her prior to this incident..why he picked that night to fvck with her is still unknown.

  • Applebootay

    That didnt happen...he tased her about 2-3 times...she grabbed it away from him (human reflex) A STRUGGLE ENSUED...he was on top of her....he jumped off and back...she didn't respond...she didn't even try to get up...he pulled out his gun and murdered her....yall need to get the facts stR8 and stop believing this media....I saw the video from before he even tased her to the point of shooting her...I was at my desk and yell out loud....I had to google to be sure it was real....theyre not going to show you all that on the news....I really hate I saw it....

  • Applebootay

    Did you know that he also lived in the same apartment complex? He murdered her plain and simple.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    What?? The cop lives in the same complex??

  • Melanated Goddess??

    Ignore that font. They're a full blown racist. You'll only see them in past like this one. Anything that doesn't have to do with black people, politics and law enforcement you won't find them. They were mute and no where to be found on the school shooter post. But will run up in here to stalk and crap on black people ASAP.

  • Melanated Goddess??

    Yeah no. I disagree. Last month there was a case where a man was fighting the police. They used their tasers on his ass. He ripped the prongs from the taser off his body and continued to run from them. He was extremely aggressive and not once did they draw their guns on him. They could've but they didn't. They actually chased his ass around until they tackled him to the ground. HE WASN'T BLACK. Now with that being said the pig didn't have to shoot that woman 5 times. He murdered her. No excuses for what he did. That pig is a murderer.

  • brooks hill

    she look like she on the pipe. sorry not sorry for her . when u on the street bad shit happens. cops are quick on the trigger but shit they want to go home too. if u can stay out that life.

  • Reina1718

    Yeah he looked scared, but the way they recording looks like this is nuthin new

  • DreamGirl

    If grabbing the officer’s taser and discharging it on his groin is not considered a major threat towards a policeman, I don’t know what is! Everyone on here saying that was not grounds to shoot someone is clearly out of their minds. I’d really like to know what any of you would do if this happened to you and you had gun handy for self-defense. The miscreant should have complied.

  • KLove

    were you there?....im all for punishing cops when they get out of line, but obviously there are conflicting accounts as to what actually happened...when it first happened...everyone was all up in arms because they thought she was pregnant....now its been proven that she was not...but folks still wanna generate premature outrage before knowing the actual facts...there needs to be an investigation (by an independent entity, not HPD) so we can find out what happened. Its easy to tell whether or not the cop is lying about being tased...have him pull his pants down and there should be some marks in his groin area where the prongs made contact..... who knows, the DA may even bow to community pressure and take this to a grand jury. the facts WILL come out there (like it did with Mike Brown, even though the media at large ignored it) .... i need to see the whole altercation from the beginning to render a proper judgement...the problem with these cellphone internet videos, is that we only see what happens once the situation has escalated, which leaves us unable to truly discern what actually happened

  • Tee Tee

    They say she was mentally ill but she had enough sense to say she was pregnant so she wouldn't get arrested and/or shot?????
    Hell what do I know? I can't and refuse to watch the video? It's very unfortunate she lost her life

    I guess me praying for the power of discernment is paying off.....and The only conflicting accounts are from the RACIST police...I for one didn't believe it...and that never factored in....because you can almost tell she was saying it as self defense....and I do believe he was tased just not on purpose....didn't you see that much.....he was ON TOP OF HER....he was struggling to get the taser from her and he got tased........if you can find footage other than what is on 2, 5, 7 it will give you a better perspective...but even then, we don't have to agree...I have 2 EYES...I saw enough to form an educated opinion...YES...she resisted....No...you never see or will ever be able to clearly see her take it and tase his balls....he surely would've have killed her before he let her full on do that....it just didn't need to end in 5 shots...like Laquan Mcdonald had a knife walking away from the pigs and he got 18 shots........YES...I tell my children and everyone never resist....even though you may be well within your right for doing so...you may not live to tell your truth....

    WHy do women use the 'im pregnant' in these situations? Come to find out, none of the women be pregnant. SMH. I wasn't there and idk what happened, but people please stop. Stop having court in the streets.If the cops says you're under arrest, there's no changing his mind or coming back from that.

    She's dead and gone for failing to comply. Take the cuffs, get in the backseat, and argue your point to the judge. All the people filming this could do nothing to stop it, so why have court in the streets?

    even if she wasn't pregnant, it does not make her death less senseless and hurtful

    Um...that tactic doesn't work either. Complying, I mean. If they want to shoot you, they just will....and will get away with it.
