INDIANAPOLIS — The Marion County Coroner's Office has ruled the death of an Indianapolis six-month-old a homicide, according to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Public Information Officer Michael Hewitt.

Around 7:30 p.m. on Friday, IMPD officers were dispatched to 1551 Renton Street on a call that a child had stopped breathing. When officers arrived, they found six-month-old De'reya Hill unresponsive.

The baby girl later died at an area hospital.
