CHARLOTTE, N.C. — An investigation is underway in north Charlotte after police say a 1-year-old died inside an apartment.

According to the police report, just after 5 p.m. Saturday evening, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were called to assist Medic who was already on scene in the 2120 block of Canterwood Drive.

“We got engine 28 coming to 2127 Canterwood Dr for a one year old in cardiac arrest,” said one dispatcher over Broadcastify.

According to dispatchers, the 1-year-old baby girl was “unresponsive and cold.”

Minutes later, police said Medic pronounced the baby dead at the scene.

According to a search warrant obtained by WCNC Charlotte, police said detectives then asked to search the property, but the residents denied them access.
