The Owings Mills woman shot yesterday morning by a man believed to have murdered two New York Police Department officers Saturday afternoon has been identified. She is Shaneka Nicole Thompson, 29, of the 10000 block of Mill Run Circle in Precinct 3/Franklin.

Thompson, who was shot in the abdomen with a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun, remains in critical but stable condition at a nearby hospital. Because of her condition, BCoPD detectives have not yet been able to interview her. They, along with NYPD detectives who are on their way to Baltimore, hope to be able to interview her later today if her condition improves. She is expected to survive her injuries.

Detectives hope that the interview with Thompson will shed light on why the suspect, Ismaaiyl Abdula Brinsley, 28, came to Owings Mills and why he shot her. Brinsley's address is unknown and detectives believe he has no ties to the Baltimore area except Thompson. Based on preliminary information from other sources, police believe that Thompson and Brinsley had a previous romantic relationship, and they believe that relationship dates back less than a year. They have no children together, and Thompson lived alone at the Owings Mills apartment complex.

There is no indication of prior criminal activity by Brinsley in Maryland, detectives say, nor is there any confirmation of gang affiliation.

The Owings Mills shooting occurred just before 6 a.m. Saturday. Two of Thompson's neighbors heard a loud noise and called 911.

Police believe that after shooting Thomspon Brinsley stole Thompson's cell phone; this is the phone detectives used to help track Brinsley as he traveled to New York. Brinsley fled the Owings Mills scene before police arrived.

Around 1:30 p.m., a friend of Thompson's notified police about Instagram posts believed to have been made by Brinsley. These posts included overt threats to kill police officers. The posts indicated that Brinsley was in Brooklyn, NY. At about 2:10 p.m., BCoPD made a phone call to the 70th precinct in New York, advising NYPD that the phone of a suspect wanted for a shooting in Owings Mills was pinging at a location in the 70th precinct. NYPD and BCoPD discussed the threatening Instagram posts during that phone call. Also around 2:10 p.m., BCoPD faxed a "wanted" poster to NYPD with information about the suspect, Brinsley.

Two NYPD officers were murdered in Brooklyn at about 3 p.m.

BCoPD detectives recovered a round from the gun used to shoot Thompson in Owings Mills and believe this is the same gun used to murder the two NYPD officers.

The Owings Mills investigation is ongoing, and  BCoPD continues to assist NYPD with its investigation. The police report for the Owings Mills shooting is incomplete and will not be released today. BCoPD plans to release shortly the "wanted" poster sent to NYPD.

The man who shot an Owings Mills woman early this morning is also the suspect in the murders of two New York Police Department officers at about 3 p.m..

The suspect is Ismaaiyl Abdula Brinsley, 28. His address is unknown at this time.

At 5:48 a.m., Baltimore County Police were dispatched to the 10000-block of Mill Run Circle, 21117. The police investigation revealed that the female victim, who is 29, was shot in her apartment by a man believed by police to have been Brinsley. The victim was shot in the abdomen and is expected to survive. Her name has not yet been released.

The suspect fled the scene before police arrived. BCoPD detectives became aware at about 1:30 p.m. of Instagram posts by the suspect that included threats against police officers. BCoPD immediately began trying to determine the location from which the posts were sent and found that the posts indicated the suspect was in Brooklyn, NY. BCoPD also tracked the phone the suspect was using.

At about 2:10 p.m., BCoPD made a phone call to the 70th precinct in New York, advising NYPD that the phone of a suspect wanted for a shooting in Owings Mills was pinging at a location in the 70th precinct. NYPD and BCoPD discussed the threatening Instagram posts during that phone call. Also around 2:10 p.m., BCoPD faxed a "wanted" poster to NYPD with information about the suspect, Brinsley.

Around 2:50 p.m., BCoPD sent a teletype with the same information contained in the flyer to NYPD's real-time crime center -- essentially, a data warehouse.

The investigation of the Owings Mills shooting by BCoPD's Violent Crimes Unit is ongoing. BCoPD continues to assist NYPD with its investigation. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.
