A fourth man was arrested Monday in connection with the city’s first homicide of the year.
Sean Collins, 18, was booked into the Tulsa Jail on a complaint of first-degree murder, jail records show.
Collins joins Jamal Dante Long, 19, Deonta Dixon, 21, and Warren David Dixon, 29, all of whom were arrested Friday in connection with the shooting death of Ronnie Stanley, 31, in the 1800 block of North St. Louis Avenue just after 4 p.m. Friday.
Long told police he and some other men came through the backyard of a residence on St. Louis and watched from the side of the house as Stanley walked up the street toward the home, according to an arrest report.
Long said two men he was with walked up to Stanley carrying a .380-caliber handgun and a 9 mm handgun and fired several shots, hitting the victim, the report says. Then all four fled in a stolen 2008 Toyota Sienna van, which matched the description of a van that had been spotted at the scene of a shooting three days earlier.
Police determined that Warren Dixon was the driver of the van.
Police later found a .380-caliber semiautomatic handgun in the van and a 9 mm magazine in Long’s pants, they said. Officers also matched shoe prints found at the scene to Long’s and Deonta Dixon’s shoes, they said.
According to the arrest report, Long told police there was an ongoing dispute over money between Stanley and Long’s alleged accomplices, although investigators have not determined a motive for the shooting.
Long is in the Tulsa Jail on complaints of first-degree murder, possession of a firearm after a felony conviction, false impersonation after a felony conviction and joyriding. He later identified Collins as the one of the men he was with at the time of the shooting, police said.
Warren Dixon is being held on complaints of first-degree murder, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a firearm by a felon and making an improper left turn.
Deonta Dixon is in jail on complaints of possession of a firearm, joyriding and first-degree murder.
