"He has a gun, he has a gun, he's going to kill me... he just shot me," the woman said in the 911 call, according to the State Attorney's Office.

When Collier County Sheriff's Office deputies arrived, a white SUV pulled up behind the patrol car, in front of the residence, according to the release.

A neighbor identified the driver as Colon and deputies took him into custody.

Victoria Colon was on the driveway with multiple gunshot wounds. She was taken to the hospital, where officials pronounced her dead.
