Two men have been arrested and charged with second-degree murder in connection with a targeted attack at a home in Levittown that left a grandmother dead and her grandson wounded, Nassau County police said Thursday.
Benjamin Lopez, 23, of Blackbird Lane, Levittown, and Deangelo Gill, 19, of Southern Parkway, Uniondale, were taken into custody blocks away from the home not long after the attack Wednesday, police said.
Police initially called the two “persons of interest” on Wednesday and did not immediately detail Thursday what evidence linked the pair to the crime.
Police said they will hold a news conference Thursday to provide additional details of the investigation.
Both men face arraignment Thursday in First District Court in Hempstead, police said.
Police said officers responding to a 911 call at about 1:50 p.m. found the survivor, identified only as a man, 24, in the foyer of his North Newbridge home. The victim’s grandmother, identified as an 83-year-old woman, was found dead in another part of the house, police said.
