DEVELOPING: Two children taken into protective custody after ‘suspicious death’ of young child in same home

A young child is dead and two other children were taken from a Minneapolis home due to the suspicious nature of the death.

Citing law enforcement sources, KMSP reports that police responded to a call of “unknown trouble” at a residence in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood early Thursday morning. Responding officers reportedly tried to revive a child under the age of 5, and the child was transported to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

It is not clear at this time what led to the child’s death, but WCCO reports that authorities believe it is suspicious. As a result, two other children in the home were taken into protective custody.

An unknown number of adults were also at the home, and no arrests have been made at this time.

This is a developing story and all information is preliminary. CrimeOnline will provide further updates when more information is available.
