EUCLID, Ohio (WOIO) - Euclid Police are investigating the death of a 4-year-old boy.

On Friday morning police said they believed his death was suspicious.

The boy’s name was Musiah Wadud.

Police said the tragedy happened around 10:30 in the morning on Thursday at the Parkside Garden apartments at 1476 E. 260th Street in Euclid.

The little boy’s grandmother told 19 reporter Kelly Kennedy that Wadud was her son’s child, but her daughter and boyfriend have custody of him and his brother because her son is in jail.

The family said the couple told police the 4-year-old fell down the stairs.

“It was devastating,” said Jauna Anderson, the boy’s grandmother. “I was coming from having lunch with my mom and we was on the freeway. I had to pull over and I’m gonna miss my grandson.”

Police told 19 News they are working with Cuyahoga County Department of Child and Family Services and the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office.  Police said they removed three young children from the home for their safety. The kids were all 10 or younger.

No arrests have been made at this time.
