Unresponsive baby spurs tests, inquiry

Fort Wayne police are investigating why a 1-month-old boy had to be rushed to a hospital in critical condition Sunday evening.

At 6:20 p.m., police officers were sent to help paramedics at a home in the 4900 block of Lester Drive in the Stonecrest mobile home park at East Tillman Road and Wayne Trace.
