QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. -

Deputies say a mother was shot and killed by an acquaintance of her 25-year-old daughter's at their home near Chandler Heights and Gantzel Road on Sunday.

The 50-year-old woman's 25-year-old and 12-year-old daughters were out for a walk when their mother called her oldest daughter and told her one of her acquaintances was threatening her with a gun at their home, deputies say.

The 25-year-old called 911 and told them a man she knew was threatening her mom with a gun.

When deputies arrived, the mother had already been shot in the face and chest, and the suspect was gone. 

The woman was taken to a hospital and died from multiple gun shot wounds on Sunday night.

After arriving at the home, authorities say the 25-year-old daughter began hyperventilating and was also taken to a hospital. When she is medically cleared, deputies will interview her about her connection to the suspect.

Deputies are still looking for the suspect, only described as a black male.

The victim's name has not been released.

    When Denis Belliveau is teaching kids about Marco Polo, he is in his element. He makes the explorer's journey come alive by taking students on a No. 7 train ride through Queens, New York's most diverse borough. He brings history alive for his students. Along the way the students stop in neighborhoods that mirror Polo's trip. I caught up with the class in Flushing, Queens, which easily resembles China.
