A man was shot by Brooklyn Park police early Sunday morning as officers investigated the death of a 7-month-old baby.

The incident is now under investigation by the Minnesota BCA.

According to Brooklyn Park police, they responded around 3:52 a.m. to the report of a baby not breathing at a home on Queens Garden North, which is off Kings Crossing North.

The child was in critical condition when officers arrived and rushed to the hospital where the infant was ultimately pronounced dead.
