Stanislaus County suspect in Long Beach shooting

Thursday saw the arrest of a Stanislaus County resident in connection to a Long Beach shooting in January that left one person dead.

Stanley Shaw (42), of Turlock, was detained during a traffic stop. Members of a multi-agency task force, including Long Beach homicide detectives and Stanislaus County Sheriff’s deputies, took him into custody in Turlock for his alleged role in the shooting.

Shaw was identified as a suspect in Charles Ogletree’s shooting in Long Beach on Jan. 30, 1942.

Ogletree, who was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in his lower and upper body, was discovered by police at an apartment on the 200 Block Atlantic Avenue. Paramedics arrived and declared Ogletree dead.

Investigators found that several people were present in the apartment at the time of Ogletree’s alleged shooter. Detectives believe Shaw pulled out the gun and shot Ogletree numerous times before fleeing.

Detectives issued search warrants to the 13,000 block of Carl Street, Pacoima, as well as the 200 block H Street, Turlock. According to the Long Beach Police Department both search warrants resulted in evidence that linked Shaw with the crime.

Shaw was taken from Stanislaus County by the Long Beach Police Department on Friday. He is currently being held in Long Beach Police Department custody on $2 million bail. He is expected in court next week for the homicide charges.
