The woman's 3-year-old toddler ran to a nearby relative to tell them their mother had been shot.
After the shooting, neighbors rendered aid to the woman until medics arrived.
She was transported to the hospital in critical condition.
HCSO believes the suspect shot at her multiple times before he fled the scene and has not been located.
