Two family members were questioned by New York City police late Saturday evening in connection to the death of a 10-year-old boy, law enforcement sources said.

Police had made no arrests Saturday night, hours after the boy was found unconscious and unresponsive at the St. Nicholas Houses in Harlem on W 131st Street.

Arriving officers found the boy around 2 p.m. lying on the floor of the apartment unit with visible bruising, puncture wounds and lacerations across his body, the sources said. A family member was attempting to revive the boy, they said.

The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
