GERONIMO, OK (KSWO) - Tragedy in Geronimo Tuesday night after a baby was found dead inside a hot vehicle.

The discovery was made in the Dollar General parking lot around 5:30 Tuesday evening where Geronimo police and first responders were called out to a baby who was found unconscious and not breathing. Medics arrived and confirmed the baby was dead. OSBI is now investigating the infant's death.

Investigators were still on the scene as of 8 p.m., collecting evidence.

Cardboard was still covering the scene, and officials say behind it was the baby. Yellow crime tape also marked off much of the parking lot.

Geronimo Police Chief David Johnston was one of the first responders on scene. And while he couldn't tell us much, including the child's identity, he did say this was the type of call every officer dreads.

"It's tough, it's a tough deal," said Chief Johnston.

Johnston says an official cause of death has not been determined. He says they won't know anything until OSBI releases the details of their investigation.
