FLORENCE, AZ (CBS5) -
A 28-year-old Phoenix man is being sought in connection with the death of a 50-year-old Pinal County woman Sunday night, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office said.
Sheriff's investigators said Tuesday Corey Allen is a suspect in the shooting death of Linda Perelli-Brown at her home in San Tan Valley.
Allen is described as 5'5" tall and weighs 105 pounds. He has braided black hair and black eyes. He may be driving a red 1999 Oldsmobile four-door car with Arizona license plate AWK5059.
PCSO said Allen is considered to be armed and dangerous. People with any information about his whereabouts are asked not to approach him but rather to notify law enforcement by calling 911.
Perelli-Brown's daughter, Nicole Frauton, 25, was in Casa Grande when she got a call Sunday afternoon from her mom saying a man with a gun was inside their home, according to Pinal County Sheriff's Office spokesman Tim Gaffney said.
Deputies arrived at the home within minutes of receiving the initial call. When they entered the home, they found Pirelli-Brown lying on the floor with multiple gunshot wounds.
Deputies provided medical aid until EMS personnel arrived. The victim was transported by ground ambulance to Banner Ironwood Medical Center and then by air-ambulance to Scottsdale HealthcareHospital. Pirelli-Brown was pronounced dead later that evening.
Detectives at the scene were not able to speak with Frautonbecause she began to hyperventilate and had to be ground transported to Banner Ironwood Medical Center. Once she was medically cleared, homicide detectives were able to speak with her.
Pirelli-Brown's father, John Pirelli, calls his daughter's death "mind-boggling."
