DAYTON, Ohio (AP) – Police say a nearly 4-month-old boy was found dead at a Dayton homeless shelter, and his father was arrested after becoming confrontational with officers investigating.

The infant was reported dead early Thursday morning at the shelter where the family was staying.

The Dayton Daily News reports police are investigating it as a suspicious death but said there was no visible trauma to the child. The boy has a twin sister who was reported to be okay.

Police allege the children’s 23-year-old father became uncooperative, punched an officer and was taken into custody. He was jailed on charges including assault on an officer and obstructing official business. He isn’t charged in connection with the boy’s death.
