A 4-month-old infant found unresponsive in a Harvard home early Friday morning later died at the hospital, police said.

The Harvard Police Department and Harvard Fire Protection District responded around 4:59 a.m. Friday to a residence in the 300 block of Finney Street for a report of an unresponsive infant.

Officers arrived first and found a 4-month-old baby girl who was not conscious and not breathing, according to Harvard Deputy Police Chief Tyson Bauman.
