Las Vegas police are investigating the death of a 5-month-old baby last week.

Police responded to the 7200 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard, near Arby Avenue, around noon on Dec. 5 regarding the baby boy being unresponsive. The infant was transported to the hospital where he later died.

Abuse and Neglect detectives are investigating but no arrests have been made. Police are waiting on the cause of death from the Clark County coroner.

According to the Clark County Department of Family Services, there was one prior Child Protect Services investigation for the child and family in October where there was a report of neglect. The allegations were found to be substantiated and the family was provided resources and services. The case was closed in November after no further CPS intervention was deemed necessary.
