PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - Police say the death of a 1-year-old Portsmouth boy has been ruled as a homicide.

Portsmouth police detective Misty Holley told media outlets that a 911 caller requested help on Saturday night for an infant who wasn't breathing. The boy was taken to a local hospital, where he died.

The medical examiner's office notified police on Tuesday that the infant's death was ruled as a homicide.

Holley says Child Protective Services workers told police they had no records of any investigations involving the boy or his parents.

No arrests have been made.
