NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department is reviewing a video that appears to show officers using a stun gun on a pregnant teenager.

The incident occurred Feb. 10 as officers investigated a disturbance in a Bronx apartment building.

Phone video made by a man in the hallway shows the 17-year-old, surrounded by officers, screaming she’s pregnant amid a struggle and a popping sound, said to be the stun gun.

The teen told WNBC ( ) that her sister also informed officers of her pregnancy during the incident.
