AUSTIN, Texas — Austin police are investigating the suspicious death of a 3-week-old boy.

Authorities were called to a home Saturday where they were unable to revive the unresponsive infant. Police already had been at the home several times the previous night after receiving repeated calls about a disturbance but it’s not clear if the child’s death and those calls are related.

Police have not immediately released the names of the baby or his parents.

A child welfare official say the family does have a history with the agency.
