A US officer shot and killed a 44-year-old woman in the parking lot of the apartment complex where she lived, authorities said.

He tried to arrest her, Baytown police Lt. Steve Dorris said, and a "struggle ensued."

She yells, "I'm pregnant!" Police are awaiting confirmation of that fact from a medical examiner. The stun gun noise is heard again. The officer backs away, and she sits up. Then he shoots - rapidly, five times.

"It's a tragic event for everybody involved," Dorris said during an interview with local CBS affiliate KHOU. "Of course, our hearts go out to the families of the deceased as well as our officer."

The Harris County District Attorney's Office is investigating, and the department will conduct an internal review.

Raquelle Cuellar, a resident in the apartment complex, told ABC 13 that the woman was often spotted walking her dog in the area. "It was a sad situation," Cuellar said. "Tragic."

"It's unfortunate that someone takes a tragic incident like this and starts posting it on social media," Dorris told KHOU. "It's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved. But that's the day and age we live in with social media."
