Police in Lawrence have identified a man found shot to death in an apartment in the northern part of the city.

But the circumstances of the shooting of 23-year-old Franklin Spottedtail were still being investigated Monday, and police have not labeled it a homicide.

Officers were called to the apartment shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday after a caller told 911 operators that someone might have been stabbed. Police said Spottedtail was dead of a gunshot wound, not a stabbing, by the time officers arrived.
