DETROIT (WJBK) – Detroit police are investigating the death of a 7-year-old boy who was found hanging from a bunk bed with a belt around his neck.

Police say they responded to a home north of the New Center area around 5:30 p.m. after the boy’s 14-year-old sister found him unconscious. Emergency crews performed CPR and transported him to Henry Ford Hospital where he later died.

Police believe the boy’s death was a suicide, but the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office will make the determination about cause of death.

Sources tell FOX 2 their investigation leads them to believe the boy was bullied at school.

CaseClosed2:Schools have a zero tolerance level for bullying, yet bullying continues and kids who can’t take it anymore are committing suicide. This is wrong and something needs to be done. No child should be so devastated he takes his own life.
