WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Wichita Police Department is investigating the death of an infant.

On Saturday around 9:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to assist EMS with an unresponsive infant at a home in the 2100 block of N. Minnesota. Officers learned that a 7-day-old boy was not breathing. The infant was taken to a hospital where he died.
