Detroit police are investigating after a 1-year-old baby was stabbed to death in southwest Detroit on Tuesday night.

Police say it happened just before 10 p.m. near W. Grand Blvd. and W. Vernor and the baby's mother is the one in custody.

It all started with a suicide call when a woman said she was going to kill herself, but also said there were dead people inside the apartment.

Police rushed to the apartment and there was a woman in the hallway bleeding from what police say looked like a self-inflicted wound.

When they checked the woman out, she yelled out that there was a baby inside the apartment.
