TURLOCK, CA - Turlock police identified a man found shot to death inside a Turlock home last Wednesday night as 24-year-old Simon White.

Officer Mayra Lewis said officers were dispatched to a call of shots fired at a residence on the 100 block of Vermont Avenue at 10:46 p.m. There they found White with at least one gunshot wound. Others in the home at the time of shooting were not injured.
