Lawrence police say they don’t suspect foul play in the Feb. 9 shooting death of Franklin Spottedtail, 23.
Police Department spokesman Sgt. Trent McKinley said that based on the department’s investigation, no suspect is being sought. Formal results of an autopsy are pending, he said.
McKinley added that investigators have not listed the death as either an accident or a suicide and are awaiting the coroner’s report.
Police responded to a call at an apartment in the 1100 block of George Court about 3 a.m. Feb. 9 and found Spottedtail dead in the apartment, McKinley said.
Initial police call logs listed the incident as a stabbing, but it was later determined to be a shooting.
Earlier this week police said they were investigating the circumstances of Spottedtail’s death and they sought leads through CrimeStoppers.
