A Southwest Philadelphia father has been charged with homicide in the death of his infant son last week.
Police say officers were called to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia shortly before 1 p.m. Friday after the death of Omar Braxton-Cooper.
The 6-week-old baby was found bleeding from his nose inside a second-floor apartment on the 5800 block of Willows Avenue.
Authorities said the infant had "multiple traumatic injuries throughout the body."
After an investigation by the homicide unit, 31-year-old Omar Cooper of the Kingsessing section of southwest Philadelphia has been charged with murder and child endangerment.
Cooper remained in prison without bail pending a June 14 preliminary hearing; his court-appointed attorney didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday.
