RACINE - Police say they know the suspect they're looking for after someone shot a woman twice in Racine.

A police lieutenant told TODAY'S TMJ4 that the shooting happened at about 10:45 p.m. Wednesday night on the 600 block of South 6th Street.

When authorities arrived, they found a 44-year-old woman with gunshot wounds in her arm and her head.

Rescue crews initially took her to Wheaton Franciscan Hospital, then by Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital.

According to police, she was being treated there Thursday morning.

"It's upsetting.  It's very upsetting," said Kate Remington.  The victim collapsed in the middle of the street right outside her gallery.

"I didn't hear gunshots.  I was awakened."

TODAY'S TMJ4's Melissa McCrady reports that the victim lives in the neighborhood.

Jorge Figueroa works at a business by the crime scene.

"Same stories going around the nation, individuals not having any regards for others' lives or their own," said Figueroa.

Police say they're trying to find two vehicles:
- A white GMC Yukon with Wisconsin license plate 591EPJ
- A white Chevrolet Camaro with Wisconsin license plate 700UDY
