Jennings, MO (KSDK) - Twin infants died Friday afternoon at a North County residence.

Firefighters with Metro North Fire responded to an apartment complex in the 2600 block of Tyrell Court around 12:30 p.m. in response to a call for two non-responsive three-month-old twin boys.

When emergency officials arrived, they determined they would not transport the children to the hospital.

Authorities say the deaths are considered suspicious for now, though there were no visible signs of trauma on either boy.

The twins were at home with their mother, and four siblings.

The Department of Family Services has been contacted, but it is unknown if they will take custody of the other children.

Police are continuing to investigate, and say they will not release any new information until the medical examiner completes the report.
