TRAVERSE CITY — Word of a suspected homicide in a Barlow Street home percolated through an east Traverse City neighborhood as authorities investigated the scene.
Mike Wolf first noticed a pair of Traverse City Police Department cars parked outside a neighbor’s home when he went to fetch the Sunday paper at about 6:30 a.m.
Hours later, Cymantha Kostecki drove past the scene, complete with police tape, police cars and a mobile Michigan State Police crime scene investigation laboratory. She returned to her nearby home to find a message from her sister detailing a suspected slaying inside the taped-off home, but no news coverage of the incident.
The message left Kostecki with lingering concern about the safety of her neighborhood.
“OK, well, did something happen and someone’s on the run?” she said.
Authorities released details of what they suspect happened Monday morning, about 29 hours after the suspected stabbing that left a man, 56-year-old Daniel Floyd

WACO, Texas (KWTX) Police were investigating Tuesday evening after gunfire was reported in a Waco neighborhood.
Officers responded at around 3 p.m. to the 2800 block of Clay Avenue after receiving reports of a shooting.
“Supposedly, somebody was shooting at somebody, but no one will talk, no one is being cooperative and we have no suspects, so that’s all we got,” police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.
Several officers and a forensic crime scene investigator were at the scene gathering evidence.
While a woman’s home appeared to have bullet holes in it, sources said no one was hit or injured.
Some teenagers on summer break were a few houses down when they say they heard gunfire.
“Me and my friends were here in the living room and then we heard about four to five gunshots right here on my street, and we rushed out trying to see what happened,” said Elmer Servin, 18.

An Orange County deputy who did not realize a man who later died had been assaulted was disciplined by the Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday.
Deputy Sergio Uribe received a written reprimand and will have to attend remedial training on preliminary investigations.
He responded to a fight at an auto-repair shop in the 5600 block of South Orange Blossom Trail on Nov. 24, 2015, after a 911 caller said he wanted help for his friend who was suffering from “fractures.”
Uribe wrote in a report that when he got there, he saw several people standing near the entrance and Geronimo DeJesus started yelling homophobic slurs at him.
Uribe walked to the back of the business, where he found Porfirio Castillo Martinez, 55, lying on a bed.
Martinez was barely conscious and could not stand on his own. He had swelling on his face and was drunk, Uribe wrote.
Martinez would not say what happened to

CLEVELAND- The FOX 8 I-TEAM has found yet another case showing why so many Cleveland taxpayers are so fed-up waiting and waiting for police.
We’ve reported before on chronic shortages of patrol officers, and now, a spotlight on delays in getting someone to a crime scene to gather evidence, the Cleveland CSI unit.
A 9-1-1 call shows a man frustrated as he wondered when someone would come to gather fingerprints at the scene of a break-in. He said, “ They shoulda been here. This shouldn’t have happened across from a school in the middle of the afternoon either.” The dispatcher tells him the crime scene investigator just got called to a shooting.
The police union says, often, the city has only one crime scene technician in the field at a time. That means that investigator would have to go to every shooting, stabbing, and much more.
Meantime, the I-TEAM has shown you cases when
