The Baton Rouge Police Department said it will not interview former LSU offensive lineman La'el Collins about the murder of a pregnant woman until after the NFL draft.

Cpl. Don Coppola with BRPD said an interview with Collins has not been scheduled. Police continue to say the draft prospect is not a suspect.

The 2015 NFL draft starts Thursday night and runs through Saturday.

Brittney Mills, 29, an expecting mother, was gunned down at her apartment Friday evening. She was about eight months pregnant, but her baby survived. Police said the baby is still in medical care.

Investigators said they believe Collins and Mills had a romantic relationship at one time.

The investigation into Mills' murder is ongoing. Police have not made any arrests.
