GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - A 20-year-old man has been arrested in Gillette in the death of a 3-year-old boy.

Gillette police Lt. Chuck Deaton say police found the boy unresponsive and struggling to breathe when they arrived at a home about 11:15 a.m. Saturday.

The boy was taken to Campbell County Memorial Hospital and then flown to Children’s Hospital in Denver where he died Wednesday.

The Gillette News Record reports (https://bit.ly/2bkGInb ) that the boy had sustained injuries to his head and stomach, but more specific information was not available.

Deaton says the man taken into custody is not the boy’s father, but is the mother’s boyfriend.

A 2-year-old girl was taken into protective custody.
