Buffalo man arrested in death of 2-year-old


Buffalo Police have arrested a 23-year-old Buffalo man in connection with the death of a 2-year-old boy.

South District officers responded to a rescue call just before 2:40 p.m. Tuesday at a home in the first block of Weaver Street in Kaisertown. Authorities say the 2-year-old was transported to Oishei Children's Hospital, where he later died.

The suspect's name is not being released, but police say he lived at the home and has been charged with manslaughter in the first degree. He is expected to be arraigned Wednesday morning.
