The death of a 2-month-old found at a Stamford, Connecticut daycare with signs of head trauma has been ruled a homicide, according to police.
Stamford EMS responded to Little Bears Beginnings Daycare, on Wardwell Street, around 3:12 p.m. Tuesday after a worker called 911 and reported that the baby girl, Bella Redondo, of New Canaan, was having trouble breathing, police said.
She was immediately transported to Stamford Hospital, where she stopped breathing, police said.
Bella was pronounced dead at the hospital at 6:20 p.m.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled the baby's death a homicide and said the cause of death is blunt force trauma to the head, police said.
A criminal investigation is underway.
"Some person caused this injury to happen to this baby," Lt. Diedrich Hohn, of Stamford police, said on Wednesday.
NBC Connecticut reached out to Little Bears Beginnings Daycare but the employee who answered declined to comment.
Two other children who were at the daycare at the time of the incident, including Bella's 2-year-old sibling, were not hurt.
Police said this has been the first homicide in 2016 for Stamford.
