Girlfriend of Miami police officer shot at home in custody

OPA-LOCKA, Fla. (WSVN) — Tiniko Thompson left her home with her attorney to turn herself in for second degree murder in the shooting death of Miami Police Officer Carl Patrick.

According to Thompson’s attorney, she is expected to be in court Thursday.

Police had set up a perimeter outside Thompson’s home, Wednesday evening, but did not immediately approach the house and arrest her. Approximately six SUVs from various agencies including City of Miami, Broward County Sheriff’s Office and Opa-locka, were outside the home or in the area of the home.

Thompson’s attorney arrived at the home shortly before 7 p.m. and left the home several minutes later with Thompson by his side. Before leaving, the attorney spoke with the media and said they would wait for the State Attorney’s Office to file information and then wait for an indictment.

As the attorney left with Thompson in his vehicle, he said that he is confident that the justice system would treat his client fairly and would not discuss any details regarding the case. He also said he believes there will probably be no bond set for Thompson.

There is no word as to exactly where Thompson was immediately taken after she left the house in her lawyer’s car.
