It was no accident.

That's the report coming from our news partner CBS 4 surrounding the shooting death of Miami Officer Carl Patrick.

They say the Broward Medical Examiner is also ruling out suicide.

That puts a major spotlight on the live-in girlfriend of Patrick, Tiniko Thompson.

Her attorney claims they got into a fight and she was acting in self-defense when the gun accidentally went off.

The M.E. admits it still has some additional questions about the cases, and is looking at other pieces of information.

Police at Pembroke Pines remain tight-lipped about the investigation. They want to interview Thompson about that night, but she has yet to do so.
