The Grand Junction Police Department is currently investigating the death of a 1-year-old child. Unfortunately, the child passed away this morning (April 17) in Grand Junction.

Just after 10 a.m. this morning (April 17), we lost a 1-year-old child here in Grand Junction. The Grand Junction Police Department responded to call about an unresponsive infant on Escalante Street in Grand Junction.

Not only did the Grand Junction Police Department respond to the call on Escalante Street, the Fire Department did too. Unfortunately, the child was pronounced deceased at the scene.

According to KKCO, the Grand Junction Police department is currently undergoing an active investigation. I can't imagine what this must feel like, especially for the child's parents. As quickly as the child's life begun, it came to an end.

My heart goes out to the family of the child and I hope that the investigation will give them some peace of mind.

More details to come as we receive more information.
