COPY-Woman killed while calling 911

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Boynton Beach woman was fatally shot in front of her mother while on the phone with 9-1-1.

Authorities say 49-year-old Mittie Marie Allen called for help from her mother's bedroom last night. Dispatchers heard a man in the background ask Allen whether she had called police. The man, who police say was her boyfriend, Anthony Williams, then shot her at least once in the head.

The woman's mother, who was also in the room, ran outside for help. The SWAT team arrived, but Williams had escaped.

Boynton Beach Police are still looking for Williams, who has a lengthy criminal record that includes five prison sentences.
