SEDGWICK COUNTY — Law enforcement authorities are investigating the death of a seven-day-old baby.
Just after 9:30 p.m. Saturday, police responded to assist EMS after report of an unresponsive infant at a home in the 2100 block of North Minnesota, according to Officer Kevin Wheeler.
At the scene, first responders learned the boy wasn't breathing. He was transported to a local hospital here he died.
Investigators learned the child’s father had just dropped the child off at the mother’s home, according to Wheeler. The baby refused to take a bottle and then stopped breathing.
Investigators are awaiting a final autopsy but there doesn't appear to be evidence of child abuse at this time, according to Wheeler.
