A 32-year-old seven month pregnant woman was shot; while unloading her baby shower gifts. The woman was rushed to the hospital, where she suffered multiple wounds to the head and stomach and passed away. Doctors were unable to save her baby.
There has been no motive or suspects at this time. I was able to find her name on the Black Femicide Facebook page but not on any news outlets. Mayor Jim Kenney is offering a $50,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest.
I will update when I have more information. This appeared to have been a targeted hit and not random.
May Jessica Thomas and her baby Rest in Peace.”
