The Piazza Seven


The Daily News' Kitty Caparella has the latest on last month's double murder at the trendy Piazza at Schmidts:

All three of the suspected gunmen who police say were seen on surveillance video fatally shooting two people in the Piazza at Schmidts complex last month have been arrested.

Detectives say 28-year-old Antonio Wright and 33-year-old Donnell Murchison were charged today with conspiracy murder in the June 27 shootings in the seventh-floor hallway of the Navona apartment building at that complex.

Murchison was accused of being the lead triggerman in what police have characterized as a drug robbery gone wrong.

Rian Thal and Timothy Gilmore were slain as they walked toward Thal's apartment, where police found $100,000 cash and four kilograms of cocaine stashed in a closet.

With the arrest of Murchison and Wright, police have arrested seven people in the incident and are searching for at least five more suspects.
