LONG BEACH - Sheriff's deputies are investigating what they call "suspicious" circumstances surrounding the hospitalization of a 6-month-old boy in extremely critical condition.

Detectives went to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center about 7 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Sheriff's Headquarters Bureau.

The Sheriff's Department is investigating the case because it originated in Compton, where sheriff's deputies provide police services, said sheriff's spokesperson Sgt. Diane Hecht.
