Suspect in custody after man stabbed to death, another hurt in Wyoming

WYOMING, Mich. -- A suspect is in custody for stabbing a Wyoming man to death early Saturday morning.

At 1:09 a.m. Saturday, Wyoming police responded to a report of a man down with injuries after a fight in the 2900 block of Taft Avenue SW. Upon arriving at the scene, officers found a 34-year-old Wyoming man with what appeared to be severe stab wounds.

The victim had no pulse and was not breathing. Officers began CPR but were not able to resuscitate the victim and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation revealed there had been a fight between the victim and another man, during which the victim received his injuries. Another man who tried to intervene also suffered a non-life-threatening knife wound.

He was treated and released at a local hospital.

A suspect is in custody on unrelated charges while Wyoming detectives continue to investigate the incident.

The victim's identity is being withheld until relatives are notified.

The suspect will likely be in court on Monday.

    This whole area around Taft from 28th to prairie is a 3rd world nightmare riddled with crime and drugs. Those people who own all of these properties should be held accountable for the rundown housing that should have been leveled years ago. This is nothing more then a section 8 hood with slumlords owning them.

    That whole area is a crime ridden hood from 28th down thru prairie to to Burlingame to Byron center. Most of those apartments on Taft including the duplexes should be leveled and the slumlords fined heavily including the city of Wyoming.

    These descriptions of the areas RJ mentions are very believable to me.The solutions are sensible as well.I’ve described the same scenario on the west side many times.In all honesty,you could probably bulldoze 60 % of the city,and that alone would improve it, by forcing the lawbreakers out of those areas.But with the politicians we have now–who support low income housing–and low income thugs,we are like dogs howling at the moon.There need to be protests at the GR,Kentwood and Wyoming city halls–by lots of interested,law abiding citizens.Otherwise more of the same in our future.
