Emergency personnel were called to an AutoZone parking lot after a baby was found unresponsive in an SUV at about 4:45 p.m., the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.
“EMS transported the baby to Riley [Hospital for Children] where despite the best efforts of medical staff, the baby died,” police said in a release.
The mother of the child was taken in by homicide detectives to be interviewed.
o charges have been filed at this time.
“This is still considered a death investigation at this time,” police said in a release. “If it is ruled a homicide a formal brief will follow.”
The Marion County Coroner’s Office will conduct an autopsy on Monday to determine the exact cause of death.
