Police were called at 8:23 a.m. to an apartment in the 12200 block of South Green, where officers found the boy with “visible injuries,” according to police News Affairs Officer Michelle Tannehill.

Tayveon J. Thomas was taken to Roseland Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:15 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy Tuesday found he died of multiple injuries due to child abuse, and his death was ruled a homicide, according to the medical examiner’s office.
