BUCKEYE, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Buckeye say they are investigating a homicide.

Officers were called around 2:30 a.m. Monday about a woman who had been attacked inside a home in the Shepard Estates subdivision.

When officers arrived, they determined that the suspect had fled the scene.

They found a woman in her late 60s inside the home with critical injuries.

Buckeye Fire Department crews transported the woman to a hospital, where she died from her injures.

The name of the victim hasn't been released yet.

Police say it's not believed to be a random act of violence as it appears the woman and her attacker knew each other.
