Heywood was taken to an area hospital, where she later died, police said.
"Everyone here, all the neighborhood people here, have been saying how shocking and awful this is, because this is a nice, peaceful, friendly, diverse — everyone gets along — kind of little neighborhood here," said Carla Odiago, who heard the gunshots. "It's just scary."
Police have said they do not believe the shooting was a random incident.
Anyone with information on Jackson's whereabouts is urged to call (617) 343-4470 or leave an anonymous tip by calling 1-800-494-TIPS.
