    After The Smoke Clears... Arrest Juan DelaCruz for the MURDER of Pamela Turner RIGHT NOW

    On May 13, 2019,  Pamela Shantay "Na Na" Turner was violently taken from us. However, in return, she was reunited with her mother Helen Ruth Frye-Turner. She leaves behind to mourn; her children Cameron January (Shamone) and Chelsie Rubin (Jerome) of Houston, Texas; three grandchildren; Serenity Shelby, Aniyah Williams-January, and Londyn Shelby of Houston, Texas; her father Douglas McArthur Turner; two biological sisters, and one sister at heart; Mildred Morris (Tony) of Chester, Virginia, Tracy Frazier (Marc) of Portland, Oregon  and Antoinette Dorsey of Houston, Texas; one brother, Adrian Turner (Elena) of Bluffton, South Carolina; four nephews, three aunts, four uncles and numerous cousins and friends. Juan Delacruz, 37, shot 44-year-old Pamela Turner while attempting to arrest her on open warrants, Baytown Police Department officials said. Delacruz tried to render aid immediately after the shooting, but Turner died on the scene. Delacruz was placed on paid administrative leave, which is the standard protocol. Community members and Turner's family are calling the shooting unjust, saying that Turner suffered from a mental illness. Delacruz contacted Turner and tried to arrest her, but she struggled with him, forcing him to use his Taser on her, Baytown PD Lt. Steve Dorris said. As he tried to handcuff her, she allegedly grabbed his Taser and used it on him. Lt. Dorris says that's when Delacruz was forced to pull out his gun and fire multiple times at Turner, hitting her at least once. Pamela Turner’s life ended shortly after her granddaughter’s began. The 44-year-old woman had yet to meet the baby, who was born two days before Turner was fatally shot by a Baytown police officer at her apartment complex. When the girl gets older, her parents will explain that the grandmother was a loving person, not the villain that police have made her out to be, her family said Thursday. The family of Pamela Turner, fatally shot by Baytown police said this week she could not have used a Taser on the officer as described in official accounts of the incident last year. The officer who killed Pamela Turner on May 13, 2019, was using a Taser model that had to be manually reloaded in order to deploy another round, civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump said on Wednesday. Police stated that Officer Juan Delacruz first used the Taser on Turner, then shot the 44-year-old woman after she used the Taser against him.
