CHICAGO – A 7-month-old girl is in critical condition after officers discovered her unresponsive Thursday during a well-being check in Pullman.

At around 6:30 p.m., officers returned for a well-being check when they discovered the 7-month-old baby unresponsive, suffering from blunt force trauma to the head.

The baby has been transported to Comer Children’s Hospital in critical condition.
