Baltimore homicide detectives are investigating the death of an infant who was found in his Northeast Baltimore home Wednesday afternoon.
The father of the four-month-old boy told investigators that he had put the child in his crib with a bottle and returned more than an hour later to find him face down and unresponsive. The child was rushed to Johns Hopkins Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 3:02 p.m.
The family's home is located on the 2100 block of Belair Road on the edge of the Four by Four neighborhood. Police did not release the infant's name on Thursday.
"Right now there are no signs of anything suspicious," police spokesman Det. Vernon Davis said.
The Medical Examiner's office will determine a cause of death, he said.
