EXCLUSIVE: Pictured ex-girlfriend of NYPD cop killer who he shot in stomach before NY execution

These are the first pictures of the Veterans Affairs officer critically injured at the start of madman cop killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley’s gruesome two-state shooting spree.

Shaneka Thompson was gunned down in her third-floor apartment in the Baltimore suburb of Owings Mills, Maryland.

She is expected to recover, her grandfather James Delly told DailyMail.com.

‘She is not able to speak at this stage,’ Delly added. ‘But she is expected to make a full recovery.’

Thompson, 29, had dated Brinsley within the past year according to Baltimore County cops, although Delly said he knew nothing about the relationship and said he was ‘shocked’ that she would have had anything to do with a copkiller.

Brinsley, 28, shot Thompson in the abdomen shortly before 6am in her upscale apartment in the Greenwich Place development, which overlooks the Owings Mill AMC Cinema’s parking lot.

He used the same silver 9mm semi-automatic handgun that killed NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu as they sat in their marked patrol car in the Bedford-Stuyvenstant district of Brooklyn.

Police found a bullet in the apartment that matched those used to kill the police officers.

Thompson is currently in an unidentified hospital in critical but stable condition.

NYPD officers have traveled to Maryland to interview her in a bid to find out what triggered Brinsley’s murderous spree, but have not yet been able to speak to her because of the severity of her wounds.

Brinsley stole Thompson’s cellphone after he had shot her.

It was the location ‘pings’ from that phone that let police know he was on his way to New York.

They then discovered that he had made shocking threats on Instagram that he would ‘put wings on pigs’.

Tragically the message arrived too late. It only reached the NYPD just as Brinsley was about to murder the officers execution-style.

He was then cornered in a subway station and turned the gun on himself in front of dozens of Christmas shoppers.

Thompson grew up in tiny Winnsboro, South Carolina, and went to Francis Marion University in Florence, South Carolina.

She was a member of the Student Government Association’s Senate and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics.

She worked as a health service manager at Pope Army Airfield in Fayetteville, North Carolina, before transferring to the Veterans Administration in Baltimore this summer where she is now a health insurance specialist.

On her LinkedIn page, Thompson describes herself as ‘a strong problem-solver’ with ‘ a record of managing personnel, facility operations, and administrative duties while providing the highest quality of care.’
