5-week-old is termed shaken baby

MONROE - A 5-week-old infant was hurt seriously in what Monroe police are calling a shaken baby incident.

Detective Tyler Dickerson said the baby girl was taken by her parents Thursday evening to Mercy Memorial Hospital and transferred to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, where she was in critical condition.

Detective Dickerson said doctors said she suffered brain injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome. No charges have been filed.

The detective said in a Monroe County Probate Court hearing that a 6-year-old boy was removed from the home.
