Officials with the Grand Prairie Police Department told officials with the Mansfield Police Department around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday that they were investigating a case regarding suspicious injuries to a 3-year-old boy.

Grand Prairie EMS officials took the boy from a Grand Prairie motel to an Arlington hospital. There, the boy was pronounced dead just after 11 p.m.
