EL PASO, Texas -- Investigators with the El Paso Police Department's Crimes Against Persons and Crimes Against Children's Unit were called out to Far East El Paso on Sunday afternoon after a child was found unresponsive.

The call for paramedics went out at 12:43 p.m. Sunday at the 13000 block of Enrique Gomez Lane and Hugo Reyes Street after family members found a 2-year-old girl inside a hot vehicle.

Police have not confirmed how long the child had been inside the vehicle -- or when she was last seen by family members.

Family members were said to have been performing CPR as paramedics arrived. The child was then rushed to Sierra Providence East where she was pronounced dead.

A KFOX14 crew reported police officers have closed off the scene with red crime scene tape.

More information will be provided as soon as it becomes available.
