SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- Schenectady police are continuing their investigation into the death of a 10-year-old girl found unresponsive on Wednesday night.
Police responded to a residence, located at 1088 Willett Street, for the report of an unresponsive child, after family members said they found her at approximately 7 p.m.
Police said that when they arrived on the scene, the girl was not breathing. She was treated on the scene and taken to Ellis Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
An autopsy conducted Thursday turned back inconclusive results, and further toxicology reports will not be available for several days.
Police say there are currently no criminal charges pending in this investigation.
Police conducted interviews to gather more information with family and friends Wednesday night. Lieutenant Mark McCracken tells the NEWS CENTER the family has been cooperative.
The incident and cause of death are being investigated by members of the Youth Aid Bureau and is considered an active crime investigation.
The name of the girl has not been released at this time.
"It hurts, it's really a heartbreaker," said neighbor Susan Tibbitts.
"She was an awesome child; let me tell you, awesome. She would do anything for anybody," said family friend Madalyn Gonzalez. "In school she loved the basketball, football. Anything we had, she would always run. She'd do everything, so I mean it's just a bad, it's hard."
