Officers responded to the 3600 block of Littleleaf Drive at 11:58 a.m., on Tues, January 14, 2020, after receiving a 911 call in reference to an unresponsive and not breathing two month old male infant. Upon the officer’s arrival, they immediately began performing CPR until Killeen Fire Department Paramedics arrived and transported the infant to Advent Health. At approximately 1:00 p.m., Justice of the Peace Cliff Coleman pronounced the infant, Quan Kendrick Devin Scott, deceased and ordered an autopsy to be performed at the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas.
