Indianapolis police: Boy, 4, fatally stabbed

Indianapolis police say a 4-year-old boy who apparently suffered multiple stab wounds has died and his 14-year-old cousin was being questioned by detectives.

Police spokesman Kendale Adams said officers were called about 11 p.m. Saturday to an apartment, where they found the bleeding boy and he was rushed to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Adams said in a statement early Sunday that officers subsequently found the boy's 14-year-old female cousin, covered in blood, on a city street afterward. The statement said officers took the cousin to police headquarters for questioning. Police said they had made no immediate arrest, but the investigation was continuing.

Authorities say the victim and his 11-year-old sister were apparently at their grandparent's apartment at the time, but further details weren't released.
