Police in Cranston are investigating the death of a two-year-old girl found unresponsive in her bedroom Wednesday night.

It happened around six o'clock at the girl's home on Imperial Ave. in Cranston. The cause of death has not yet been determined and police say the investigation is still ongoing.

"Honestly, I'm kind of in shock," says Jennifer Prete, who lives around the corner from the home. "We have a 9-year-old and I couldn't imagine [that happening]."

One neighbor told ABC6 a Cranston Police Cruiser could be seen guarding the house overnight Wednesday. Police are awaiting an autopsy before they provide more information about the death. The Rhode Island Attorney General's office is also involved in the investigation.
