GRIMES, Iowa (AP) - Police in a suburban Des Moines city say a young boy has been found dead and his mother unresponsive inside a home.

Des Moines television station KCCI reports (https://bit.ly/2ahFY2W ) that police and medics responded to the Grimes home following a 911 call just after 10 a.m. Friday.

Polk County Sheriff’s Major Brent Long says a child about 7 or 8 years old was found alone outside in the yard when officers arrive. The mother and dead boy were found inside.

The mother was taken in serious condition to a hospital.

Authorities have not released their names or given other details about what happened, but Long said police are not looking for suspects in the incident.
