SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) -

A Shreveport man has been arrested accused of Second Degree Murder in the death of a 13 month-old Wednesday.

It happened around 1:30 a.m. in the 3500 block of Milam Street in Shreveport. Shreveport Police patrol officers were called to an apartment on reports of an EMS call.

When officers arrived, members of the Shreveport Fire Department who were on scene, told police that they responded to a medical emergency at the home where they found an unconscious and unresponsive 13 month old boy.

The Fire Department transported the child to University Health Center where he was later pronounced deceased.

Detectives and officials with the Caddo Parish Coroner's Office were called and immediately began their investigation.

Crime scene investigators processed the Milam Street residence for any potential evidence.

Based on information and evidence gathered during the course of the investigation, authorities arrested 26 year-old Gerderrick Davis, the boyfriend of the child's mother.

KTBS 3 News contacted the Caddo Coroner's Office in reference to the cause of death of the child. The following statement was release regarding the case:

"At this time, the Caddo Coroner's Office is not releasing any information in reference to the one-year-old infant who died today, due to an ongoing criminal investigation." - Dr. T. G. Thoma.
