Authorities are investigating after three young children were found dead at a home in Phoenix Monday night.
Phoenix police were called to the home near 24th Street and Southern Avenue around 7:25 p.m.
Police say when officers arrived, they were met by three adults. When they went inside the home, they found the three kids unresponsive.
Officers performed CPR before fire crews arrived and pronounced the 3-year-old boy, 2-year-old girl and 7-month-old girl dead. Police say family members told officers the children had been sick.
It is too early to determine the cause of death and there were no obvious signs of trauma, said Phoenix police Sgt. Mercedes Fortune.
"This is one of the most difficult calls that officers and fire respond to, ones dealing with young ones who have lost their lives," said Fortune.
I’m told scene at 24th St./Vineyard is now a police investigation. Three kids unresponsive. Phoenix Fire did confirm they did *not transport anyone to the hospital but won’t comment further on their conditions. Awaiting update from PD @abc15 pic.twitter.com/VTNuICAvmQ
