NEWARK, N.J. (PIX11) -- Police are investigating the suspicious death of a two-year-old boy in Newark.

A spokesman for the Essex County prosecutor said the baby died Saturday at 50 Halstead St.

The child was taken to Newark University Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

"It could happen to one of us," said neighbor Theresa Encarcion. "We just don't know how."

Neighbors say the family only moved in a few weeks ago.

Chief of Detectives for the Essex County prosecutors office Anthony Ambrose told PIX11 that the matter is still under investigation and no charges have been filed.
