NYC: Man scoped out pregnant NJ woman’s home for 90 minutes before fatally shooting her

A man hid outside the New Jersey home of a pregnant woman for 90 minutes before fatally shooting her when she showed up, a report said.

Donqua Thomas, 30, allegedly shot the woman, identified by authorities only as R.L., several times outside her Paterson home on Thursday, NBC New York reported.

Thomas scoped out the woman’s home from inside his car before attacking once she returned, the report said, citing prosecutors.

The woman, who was eight months pregnant, died after delivering her baby at the hospital.

The newborn is in stable condition, authorities said.

Thomas fled after the shooting but turned himself in on Saturday, according to the report. It’s unclear if he and the victim knew each other.
