Lubbock Police call infant's death a homicide

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Police launch a homicide investigation, after a Lubbock infant dies from suspicious injuries. We first told you about this case last week, when EMS rushed the child to the emergency room at University Medical Center.

The case began on March 3rd.  That's when emergency crews responded to a home in south Lubbock.  They took an approximately 1-year-old boy to UMC.  Medical staff alerted police shortly after. Doctors determined the infant's injuries were not consistent with an accident.

On Thursday evening, doctors notified police that the child had died. Preliminary autopsy results indicated homicide. "It's still quite preliminary, and they're not ready to discuss suspects or anything of that nature. Things that are of interest, obviously, are people that had access to the baby with in the last few day of the baby's life," Lubbock Police Captain Greg Stevens said. 

Stevens says that right now, investigators have not zeroed in on a specific time or suspect in their investigation. He says authorities could be prepared to present a case to the District Attorney and name a suspect in the next few days. We'll continue to follow this developing story and bring you the latest as it happens.
