    Investigators in Alameda County are looking into the death of a 2-year-old boy in Oakland's Laurel District Friday morning, according to police.

    The boy was found unresponsive in a home in the 3600 block of 39th Avenue at about 10:05 a.m., police said.

    Officers attempted to resuscitate the child with CPR, and he was rushed to a hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later, police said.

    Police are calling it an unexplained death, possibly sudden infant death syndrome.
