HARLEM, Manhattan —The NYPD is investigating the death of a 2-month-old girl after she was found dead in her Harlem home Sunday morning, police said.

Police received a 911 call around 9:45 a.m. Sunday for an unconscious baby in a 5th Avenue building near 112th Street, officials said. The baby girl was unconscious and unresponsive.

Paramedics rushed Kourtny Williams to Mt. Sinai Hospital, but she didn’t make it.

Police are moving away from the initial investigation that the victim’s mother rolled over on the child during her sleep. No criminality is suspected, police said.

The New York City Medical Examiner’s office will determine the cause of death.
