The girlfriend of a Miami police officer shot dead in the Pembroke Pines home they shared said Carl Patrick pulled the trigger himself as the two tussled over his service pistol.
"I did my best to hold on and struggle with him," Tiniko Thompson, 45, said in an interview with WTVJ-Ch. 6. "He fell, he slipped, and we're still tussling with the gun...and it went 'pow.' That's it."
Patrick, 52, a Miami cop for 25 years, was found dead in the Rainbow Lakes community home on Friday, two days after Thompson said he was killed.

She waited TWO DAYS to report the dead body...or someone else found it in his home (?).
Sure, sounds plausible, happens all the time!!
Well, like the guncontrolnazis keep saying... guns in the home...........blah, blah, blah. Cops need to check their guns in when they are off duty I guess. :>}
She was in hiding. After being named by the police and the media as the shooter and after getting a lawyer, she came forward. The body was discovered after police were called to do a welfare check.
Reminds me of this for some reason.
We Both Reached for the Gun
She is right to lawyer up and not talk to the police... Everything she says WILL be used against her. Unless she gave herself the bruises looks like she was beaten up. I’m sure it’s possible, but I don’t believe most people are capable of beating their self up...
