SACRAMENTO, Calif. --
A father has been arrested in connection with his 18-month-old son's death, Sacramento police said Friday.
The 28-year-old man, whose name was not immediately released, faces a charge of felony child abuse, Sgt. Norm Leong said.
Investigators will decide if more charges are warranted pending the outcome of an autopsy.
The toddler died Thursday night after he was taken by ambulance from his home to UC Davis Medical Center.
Police said the child had some injuries that indicated some kind of abuse, but officers did not know if the abuse caused the child's death.
The father was arrested during questioning at police headquarters.
