A woman fatally shot by a Texas police officer in the parking lot of an apartment complex just outside of Houston can be heard shouting that she is pregnant in video of the altercation shared on social media.

Authorities have not confirmed the victim shot late Monday night was actually pregnant and are currently investigating the deadly incident.

Baytown Police Lt. Steve Dorris said in a statement early Tuesday, the officer involved – identified only as an 11-year veteran of the force – was on routine patrol around 10:40 p.m. near The Brixton Apartments, where he spotted the 45-year-old year woman, who has not yet been named.

Dorris added the officer had previous interactions with the woman and knew she had outstanding warrants.
