BELOIT (WIFR) -- Beloit police are investigating the death of a 3-month-old infant.

Around 4:15am, members of the Beloit Police Department and the Beloit Fire Department responded to a residence in the 1500 block of St. Lawrence for what was being reported as an infant child that was not breathing.

Beloit Fire personnel took over lifesaving efforts from family that had started CPR. The Beloit Fire Department transported to Beloit Memorial Hospital where the infant was pronounced dead.

The investigation has determined that around 12:00am the baby was fed by the infant’s 16 year old mother and the two then went to sleep on a couch. Around 4:15am the mother discovered the infant was unresponsive and notified the Rock County 911 Communications Center. An autopsy will be conducted and police say the matter remains under investigation.
