SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Shreveport police say a toddler has died after a dresser fell on the child.

KSLA-TV (https://bit.ly/1eFAH2i) reports police say the accident happened just before 8:30 p.m. Monday at the Cooper Road Plaza Apartments, also known as the Peach Street Apartments. Police say a dresser fell on and killed a 1-year-old child.

Detectives on the scene interviewed the mother and say at least one other young child was inside the apartment when the accident happened.

Police say it’s too early in the investigation to know if any criminal charges will be filed.

The name of the child has not been released.
