A 21-year-old McKeesport woman is being held in Allegheny County Jail after being arrested in connection with the death of her 17-month-old child.

Allegheny County Police said Christian Clark is charged with homicide and attempted homicide.

County police Lt. Andrew Schurman said McKeesport police and first responders were dispatched at 11:13 p.m. Tuesday to the Hi View Gardens apartment complex for a 9-1-1 call reporting that the young boy was "unresponsive."

The boy, whose name was not released, was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Police said they determined that Clark was responsible for the child's death. Additional information is expected this afternoon at a news conference at Allegheny County police headquarters in Pittsburgh's Point Breeze section. (Allegheny County police photo)
