DENVER (AP) - Investigators say the death of a 10-year-old developmentally disabled boy in the Denver suburb of Wheat Ridge is suspicious.

Police spokesman John Romero tells The Denver Post (https://goo.gl/ca4DbW ) that officers were called to a home Tuesday night, and the boy’s grandmother told them she found him unresponsive. Police performed CPR before the boy was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Romero says police had been to the home with Department of Human Services officials before as part of an investigation, but he did not elaborate on the nature of that inquiry.

Citing confidentiality policies, Lynnae Flora, a spokeswoman for Jefferson County Human Services, would not comment Thursday. Alicia Caldwell, a state DHS spokeswoman, said the agency could not comment on the case.

The boy’s name has not been released.
