Ambridge police said they found drugs, guns and other contraband in a borough home after a drug-related shooting wounded one resident Monday.

Acting police Chief James Mann said Chad Gray, 29, was in critical but stable condition in a Pittsburgh hospital Tuesday after he was shot in the side.

Three men apparently walked in through the unlocked front entrance to the home in the 100 block of Park Road about 7:45 p.m. Monday, and held Gray and four others inside at gunpoint.

Mann said police believe the armed men, only described as wearing black clothing and covering their faces, were familiar with the house. He added police had been watching Gray's house for months after receiving reports of drug activity there.

Early Tuesday, Mann said police served a search warrant at the house and found heroin, marijuana, guns and other illegal items inside. No arrests had been made as of Tuesday evening.
