Two 18-year-old men, Dionte Martinez and Thomas Perkins, were arrested in connection with the shooting and charged with assault with intent to murder, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, according to police.

“After a complete and thorough investigation, officers were able to later learn and ascertain the identities of the suspects wanted in connection to the shooting,” police said. “Members of the Youth Violence Strike Force, along with members of the Quincy Police Department, located and arrested the suspects in Quincy.”

Police say nothing was being filmed at the time, and it does not appear that the security guards were targeted in the shooting.
