Woman fatally shot by cop in traffic stop-turned-shootout in Tennessee

A woman in Tennessee was killed and a cop was rushed into surgery following a shootout in a parking lot, graphic video shows.

Footage of the Friday morning encounter between Metro Nashville Police Officer Josh Baker and Nika N. Holbert, 31, shows the 14-year veteran cop deploying his Taser on the woman while ordering her to get out of a car.

Baker then tries to take the woman into custody as she yells and reaches for a handgun, opening fire on the officer, who shoots back and fatally wounds Holbert, the intense footage shows.

“Ma’am, you’re about to get tased,” Baker tells Holbert as she begins to run away as the officer tries to put her in handcuffs, according to the video. “Get down! Get down on the ground!”
