Child found with serious injuries, Fort Stockton Police investigating


The Fort Stockton Police Department is investigating after a child was found with serious injuries to the head and body over the weekend. 

Officials say around 10 a.m. Saturday officers were called to Pecos County Memorial Hospital about a child abuse investigation. 

At the hospital, officers discovered a 3-year-old had been brought in with head and body injuries, according to a release. 

The child was later air lifted to a Lubbock area hospital and is listed in critical condition, police say. 

The FSPD has since contacted the Texas Rangers to assist in the investigation.
