    A stabbing in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood Thursday morning left a woman critically injured, according to police.

    Officers responded to the stabbing at a housing development on Stratton Street just after 11 a.m. Thursday.

    The victim, who has not been identified, suffered life-threatening injuries to her upper body and was taken to Boston Medical Center, according to police. She has been described as being between 30 and 40 years old. Her current condition is unclear.

    Police said this does not appear to be a gang-related incident, but rather a neighbor-on-neighbor dispute.

    "The officers, in a quick response, grabbed the person we think is responsible for it. She's been taken into custody," Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said.

    The name of the individual in custody has not been released.

    A woman who said she called police told NBC10 Boston she heard arguing and saw her friend get stabbed by a friend.
