Search, AR -- (KARK) Searcy Police have arrested a woman accused of killing her mother early Friday morning.

They say Alexandria Williams, 33, shot Dina Darden, 50, in the parking lot of a Big Lots store.

It happened just a few minutes after midnight Friday. Police say the victim worked at the store and had just completed her shift.

While officers were on the way to investigate the call of shots fired, witnesses said the suspect had taken off in a red Ford F-150 pickup truck.

The truck was soon spotted by officers who tried to pull the driver over but they refused to stop.

The driver was eventually stopped after a trooper with the Arkansas State Police deployed spike strips.

At 12:23 a.m., Searcy Police took Williams into custody. Darden was pronounced dead after being taken to the White County Medical Center.

Williams is being held on $500,000 bond and faces a first degree murder charge. There's no word yet on a motive for the killing.
