Unarmed pregnant woman shot dead five times by police

An unarmed pregnant woman has been shot five times while trying to flee a suspected car theft, it has been reported.

A horrified witness said Missouri police shot the woman Friday night, even though the woman told them she was unarmed and pregnant.

Shédanja, who witnessed the scene, can be heard screaming in the video: “They shot her. “Oh my god, they shot her!”

She added, “Oh my god they shot her and they still handcuff her!”

The police said KCTV that Leonna Hale, 26, was shot and killed at 8 p.m. by officers responding to reports of armed auto theft.

Leonna was with a male driver who fled when police stopped her.

She was shot while trying to flee from the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

She is said to be in stable condition at the hospital.

Officials say they are investigating the shooting.

The witness who filmed it claimed on Facebook that before she started running, she “held up her hands and spoke to them to show she wasn’t holding a gun.”

Shedanya too told the Kansas City Star that Leonna had refused to get on the floor because she told police she was pregnant.

She said in the video: “She wanted to cooperate, she got scared, she ran down and they shot her… it’s not right!”

Shédanja adds that Leonna warned there was a gun in the car and insisted that she had not drawn a gun on the police.

Police later confirmed they found a handgun nearby.

Shédanja told The Star: “She didn’t even have a stick in her hand. One two three four five. I remember it because it didn’t stop. You shot five times.

“I remember seeing it hit the ground and I froze,” she said, adding that her sons – ages 1, 10 and 13 – were also all traumatized when they saw it .

Interim Chief of Police for the Kansas City Police Department Joseph Mabin told local news, “We never want to get into situations like this. Not the public as a police department.

“Every time it happens, it’s a detriment to our community. I want to make sure the public is safe. There is no constant threat.

“We are committed to 100% transparency. This is a bank holiday weekend. It’s time for friends. No time for violence.”
