7-month-old Boy Dies Under Suspicious Circumstances
RED BLUFF, Calif. -

The Tehama County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a 7-month-old boy in Red Bluff.

Deputies and medical crews were called to Byron Avenue at around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, which happens to be Mother's Day.

The infant was taken to the hospital, where he later died. Officials tell us deputies and detectives were dispatched to the hospital shortly after, and are currently engaged in a "child abuse investigation."

Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston says there were people home at the time when the infant's condition was discovered, and interviews are underway.

No one is in custody at this time.
