Newington police are investigating the untimely death of a 6-month-old baby girl that was reported around 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
Investigators responded to 74 Timothy Street at about 8 a.m. on Tuesday to investigate a reported death and remained there throughout the day.
The 6-month-old girl was transported to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Neighbors told NBC Connecticut that a grandmother, grandfather, mother, second-grade boy and a kindergarten girl also lived with the baby who died. They woke up to the sounds of the grandmother screaming.
"It’s a quiet neighborhood. It’s a peaceful neighborhood," Valerie Urso, of Newington, said. "....I opened my front door and I heard this woman screaming at the police visibly upset."
The family just moved to Newington a few weeks ago.
"It's just unbelievable," Joe Mazzoccoli, of Newington, said. "You don't think it's going to happen on your street. That's for sure."
No additional information has been released.
Newington police said they have asked for help from the State Police Major Crime Unit to process the scene.
Police said all people involved are cooperating with the investigation. Officers are working to figure out the cause of the baby's death.
