A crowd of people gathered in front of the Baytown police station mid-Tuesday after an officer fatally shot a woman Monday night. 

About 15 to 20 people held signs that read "Black Lives Matter" and "Full Accountability."

The shooting was recorded by a witness. The video was widely circulated on Snapchat and Facebook

In the video, the woman can be heard shouting "I'm pregnant" before she was shot, but a family member tells KHOU 11 News that claim wasn't true.

Baytown Police Lt. Steve Dorris also confirmed that she was not pregnant.

The altercation and shooting happened in the 1600 block of Garth Road at about 10:40 p.m., according to Lt. Steve Dorris with the Baytown Police Department.

A law enforcement source told KHOU 11 News the woman who was shot was Pamela Shantay Turner, 44.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office is assisting in the investigation, and as per standard protocol the officer has been placed on paid administrative leave.

Baytown police said the officer's name will not be released for at least three days.
