Selma police are investigating the recent death of an 11-year-old boy, labeling it as suspicious.
Officers responded to a call Sunday regarding a boy who was non-responsive in Selma, Lt. Christie Mooradian said.
With the assistance of neighbors, officers performed CPR until paramedics arrived, she added.
The child, who was identified by the coroner's office as Steven Aguilera, was first taken to a Selma hospital and then transferred to Children's Hospital Central California.
Steven, a sixth-grader at Andrea Jackson Elementary School, was taken off life support on Tuesday.
Police have not determined his cause of death but said the boy may have inhaled butane.
"It doesn't appear any foul play has taken place," Mooradian said.
Police are not revealing any more information.
