Turlock man arrested for Long Beach murder

A Turlock man was recently taken into custody on allegations he shot and killed a man during an argument at a Long Beach apartment in January.

On March 10, Long Beach Police homicide detectives, with the assistance of the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Special Investigations Unit and the Turlock Police Department located and arrested Stanley Shaw, 42, of Turlock. Shaw was located during a traffic stop in the area of W. Tuolumne Road and N. Golden State Boulevard.

The victim in the Jan. 30, 2022 murder has been identified as Charles Ogletree, a 42-year-old resident of Long Beach.

While the motive is still under investigation, detectives believe the victim and suspect were known to each other and were involved in a verbal dispute which escalated into a shooting. Detectives served search warrants in the 13000 Block of Carl Street in the City of Pacoima and the 200 Block of H Street in Turlock. Both search warrant services resulted in the discovery of evidence which linked Shaw to the crime, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

On Jan. 31, Long Beach officers were directed by citizens to an apartment unit in the 200 Block of Atlantic Avenue, where they located a male adult victim inside suffering from multiple gunshots to his upper and lower body. Officers immediately began rendering life-saving aid until Long Beach Fire Department personnel arrived and determined the victim was deceased at the scene.

Detectives learned a small gathering had been taking place inside the apartment when a dispute began among Shaw and the victim. The argument escalated when the suspect produced and discharged a firearm multiple times toward the victim.

“The Long Beach Police Department would like to thank our partners - the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department, the Turlock Police Department, and the Stanislaus Special Investigations Unit - for their assistance in apprehending Shaw,” the department said.
