BAYTOWN, Texas — The body of an infant was found inside a Texas motel room after SWAT officers negotiated with a woman believed to be the child’s mother, authorities said Tuesday.
The cause of the child’s death was not immediately known, Lt. Steve Dorris, spokesperson for the Baytown Police Department, told the Houston Chronicle.
When officers arrived around 8 a.m., they found the door to the room open, KHOU reported. Police then saw a woman inside the room with what appeared to be a “long gun," according to the television station.
The woman, who has not been identified, was taken to an area hospital, the Chronicle reported. No criminal charges have been filed, Dorris told the newspaper.
