According to police, a masked man came up behind her daughter, put a gun to her head and forced her up the stairs.  

The woman said her daughter then hit the man's arm with the gun away and they both ran into separate rooms to hide.

"All I kept think about is, I'm about to die.  I know God had me and my daughter. If it wasn't for God, me and my daughter wouldn't be living to this day," said the mother.

The mother barricaded herself in a room pushing a couch against the door. Her daughter called the police from the other room.

The suspect fired some rounds into the door before getting away.
