Infant found dead at Compton home

Authorities are investigating the death of an infant reported Saturday at a Compton residence.

Homicide detectives were dispatched to a home in the 13000 block of South Harris Avenue about 8 a.m., Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Michael Hannemann said. The child was less than a year old and pronounced dead at the scene.

Hannemann said the case was labeled a homicide for now because of the child’s age. Investigators will determine if the death was related to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or other factors.

No other information was released.
