BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police say an infant who was rescued from a fire that killed his two siblings died after being found unresponsive in his crib.

Officers say 4-month-old Vance Williams III was found by his father in his crib and unresponsive on Wednesday. The infant was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Police say an autopsy has been inconclusive. The death is categorized as suspicious.

Vance’s great-great-grandmother, Barbara Hopkins, tells the Baltimore Sun that with the infant’s death, his mother has lost all three of her children.

Shade Worrell had dropped Vance out of a first-floor window into the hands of a relative during the Oct. 11 fire. Worrell’s two other children, ages 4 and 2, were among the five people who died in that fire.
