EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) _ Authorities are investigating the death of a 3-month-old boy in East St. Louis.

Officers were called late Thursday to a home where an infant was reported unresponsive and not breathing. The boy was taken to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

East St. Louis Police Chief Michael Hubbard says the father told officers that the baby rolled off a bed and onto the floor.

He says the father was caring for the boy and two other children while their mother was at work.
