The death of a 2-month-old boy early Saturday morning is being investigated by Atlanta police.

Officers were called to a northwest Atlanta apartment complex in the 2500 block of Center Street around 2:35 a.m. after the baby became unresponsive. The boy was taken to Children’s Hughes Spalding Hospital and pronounced dead.

He was identified as Emerson Jackson by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office. Investigators have not determined his cause and manner of death, pending the results of an autopsy.

Homicide investigators, crime scene technicians and the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office responded to the child’s apartment Saturday. Items of evidentiary value were photographed and collected, according to a police report.

Police did not provide further information on what led to the death, and no arrests have been announced in the case.
