METHUEN — Detectives investigating the critical wounding of a local teenager have found the sedan used in the shooting, police said Tuesday.

The car, a dark blue 2007 Honda Accord, was recovered Monday night in Haverhill, police Chief Joseph Solomon said.

Solomon declined to say where specifically the Honda was located. He did say suspects in the shooting of the 17-year-old Methuen boy on Davis Road are being vigorously pursued.

Meanwhile, the condition of the teen who was shot remains unchanged. On Tuesday, he was still listed in critical but stable condition at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, police said.

The male, who lives on Davis Road, was shot and then pushed from the car early Sunday afternoon, police said. 

He underwent surgery at Lawrence General Hospital on Sunday and was later taken by helicopter to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, police said.

The teen has not been identified by police.

A section of Davis Road was closed while police investigated Sunday.

Methuen and state police detectives are investigating.
