Local toddler's death ruled a homicide

FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities say a toddler's death in Flint has been ruled a homicide.

The Flint Journal reports that an autopsy performed Saturday found that the two-year-old died of internal injuries.

A "person of interest" is in custody and charges are pending.

It all happened when police were called to the Flint home Friday afternoon on a report that the child wasn't breathing.

Officers say the mother was attempting to resuscitate the child when emergency responders arrived, but the child was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The death is being investigated by local and state police. No word yet on exactly what happened to the toddler.
