Police are investigating after an officer-involved shooting in Baytown left one woman dead.

According to authorities, the shooting took place at The Brixton Apartments on Garth Road near Park Street around 10:40 p.m Monday.

Police said an officer spotted the woman who had outstanding warrants out for her arrest. The officer attempted to detain the woman identified by family members as Pamela Turner, 44. She resisted and the officer used a taser, authorities said.

“During the course of the attempted arrest, the female began struggling with the officer, which forced the officer to deploy his Taser,” said Lt. Steve Dorris, with the Baytown Police Department. “That deployment was not effective, and the female was able to get the officer’s Taser away from him. She actually tased the officer, which forced the officer to draw his duty weapon and fire multiple rounds at the suspect.”

According to police, the victim was a resident at the apartment complex.
