Detroit Police are investigating the early Friday morning death of a 3-month-old girl on the city's east side, officials said.

Officers were called to a home in the 13000 block of August Avenue near Gratiot Avenue and Houston Whittier Street at about 3 a.m. for a report of a deceased infant.

The baby's mother told police she had fallen asleep with the infant and two other children, according to authorities.

She said when she woke up she found the baby was unresponsive.

Officials said the investigation is ongoing but there was no evidence at the scene that indicates foul play.
