Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police are investigating the death of a baby at an apartment complex.

The baby was found on the 3800 block of Mountain Vista around 12:45 p.m. on Thursday.

Police won't comment on who called 911 when they found the unresponsive baby, or whether they're investigating anybody as a suspect in the death.

They said the child is less than a year old and was pronounced dead at Sunrise Hospital.

The baby was found inside an apartment at Park Place Apartments and the death is being investigated by abuse and neglect detectives.

"We also do child death investigations. That doesn't mean it's criminal, we do medical deaths, we do accidental deaths. Just because we're out on scene doesn't mean it's a homicide or anything like that," said Sgt. Joshua Bitsko.

Police will remain on the scene for several hours conducting their investigation.

Action News will update this story as more information becomes available.
