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.

    White flags raised at Brooklyn Bridge

    Police responded to the Brooklyn Bridge on Tuesday for a major security breach at one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the span connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. It is not clear who raised the flags that had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes or why.  The American flags that are normally up at the bridge were removed.
