Thomas allegedly waited in his car outside the victim’s home for approximately an hour and a half on Thursday until the victim arrived home, according to NBC New York. Once she arrived, Thomas is alleged to have immediately opened fire. Then, he drove away.

The victim was taken to St. Joseph’s University Medical Center where she delivered her healthy baby and then died, officials said.

Officials did not give additional information about the baby except to say they are in stable condition, NBC New York reported.

Additional details about the relationship between Thomas and the victim have not been released.

The New Jersey Attorney General did not immediately respond to an NBC News request for comment. An investigation is ongoing, according to NBC New York.
