When officers arrived at the home they found the woman with a gunshot wound and began giving her CPR until paramedics arrived. The victim was taken to the hospital where she later died.

A police department spokesperson told CBS4 that the woman has been identified but investigators will not release her name and age until Monday morning.

Investigators are classifying the 911 call as suspicious because they have not been able to get in contact with the person who called 911 and officers  are working to track down that person.

As of Sunday night, the police have not been able to determine if the woman was shot at the home where she was found or if she was shot at another location. Neighbors have told police that they didn't hear anything unusual.

If you have any information call Broward County Crime Stoppers.
