FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) _ A mother was gunned down Tuesday moments after dropping off her two daughters at a day care center, police said.

Investigators said the woman was shot several times in the back as she walked back to her car in the parking lot of the Cradle Nursery Inc., shortly after 8 a.m. She died at the scene.

Police set up a perimeter over several blocks as they searched for the gunman, who they said was believed to be a boyfriend or ex-boyfriend of the victim.
