Two men were shot, and one was seriously injured, early Wednesday morning in the Montclair section of Quincy, in an attack that police says was not random.

According to police, a Yellow Cab from Quincy pulled up on Arlington Street near the Brook Street intersection at 3:45 a.m. Wednesday to let out four occupants who were in the back seat.

As the passengers were paying the fare, a person came up to the window and fired several shots.

A 19-year-old Quincy resident was hit in the stomach with a bullet, and a 22-year-old was hit in the elbow, police said. The other two occupants were not injured.

The cab driver drove the victims to the Quincy Medical Center and notified police via his radio.

The 22-year-old had the bullet taken out of his elbow and checked himself out of the hospital. The 19-year-old was taken to Boston Medical Center, where he is in serious condition.

The victims and two witnesses were unable to provide a description of the suspect.

According to Captain John Dougan, police are investigating the incident, but the attack does not appear to be random.
