Four men were charged Friday in connection with the city’s first homicide of the year.
Jamal Dante Long, 19; Deonta Deangelo Dixon, 21; Warren David Dixon, 29; and Sean Collins, 18, are all charged in Tulsa County District Court with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Ronnie Leon Stanley.
Stanley, 31, was shot to death Jan. 4 in the 1800 block of North St. Louis Avenue.
Collins was arrested Jan. 7. The other three suspects were captured within a few hours of the killing.
According to an arrest report, Long told police that Stanley and Long’s alleged accomplices had an ongoing dispute over money.
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. All four men then fled in a stolen van, police believe.
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.
All four men remained in the Tulsa Jail on Friday night.
