A mother and her 5-year-old son found unconscious in their Jersey City home have died, and police are investigating their deaths as suspicious, according to authorities and law enforcement sources. 

The woman, who was in her 20s, and her son were found in their Lincoln Street home at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Hudson County prosecutor said.

It's not clear what prompted authorities to consider the deaths suspicious.

Authorities said there were no elevated levels of gas inside the home.
