CHELSEA (WBZ-AM) -- Police are searching for a suspect after a woman was shot late Monday night in Chelsea.

The woman, in her 40s, was shot in the chest and left forearm outside a triple-decker on Clark Ave. around 11:50 p.m. She was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, where she is in stable but critical condition. She is expected to survive.

Outside the triple-decker was an empty rocking chair--and there were red stains on the glass of the door. Eric, who lives across the street, told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Karyn Regal he heard the shots.

"It was around twelve," he said. "You just heard gunshots, and everybody was awake, everybody ran downstairs to see what was going on ... One of the cars came by, and they stopped over here in front, and they started just shooting out of nowhere. I guess she was the only one outside, and she was shot."

ScatterShot technology picked up 20 shots, and police put out at least two dozen evidence markers on the street, measuring bullet holes in buildings. A black SUV was towed from the scene.

Chelsea Police Chief Brian Kyes said that his department, along with State Police, are looking for a newer-model, gray four-door Honda with tinted windows in connection to the shooting.
