MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

Mobile Police are looking for a man who shot and killed a woman near Tillman's Corner. 

It happened around 1:45 p.m. Monday on Westchester Drive. When officers arrived they found the victim dead in a yard. Her name has not been released. 

Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste was on scene shortly after the shooting. Chief Battiste described the victim, "She was a mother, I do not think she was the mother of anybody that was immediately involved here. She is a mother, her age suggests that she is in her mid 40’s.”

MPD confirmed tonight a dog was involved and was shot, but is expected to be ok. Neighbors told FOX10 News the victim had an argument with a man over a cellphone. Neighbors said the dog was about to bite the man, but the woman stepped in to protect the dog. Chief Battiste says his detectives are following up on clues.

"We have some positive leads we are trying to follow up on that hopefully we'll be able to take the person of interest into custody as we move forward," said Battiste. 

The chief said if officers don't find that person of interest soon, they will ask for the public's help in tracking him down.
