Authorities are investigating the death of a 4-month-old Faulkner County child.
Mayflower police and Faulkner County sheriff’s deputies responded to a residence on Snuggs Circle in Mayflower last Thursday regarding a 4-month-old child who was unconscious.
Mayflower Police Chief Robert Alcon said authorities received the call at 3:51 p.m.
The infant was taken by ambulance to Arkansas Children’s Hospital, where the infant was later pronounced dead.
