Detectives are investigating the death of a 1-month-old boy who is believed to have been thrown from the window of a Richmond Hill apartment early on Friday morning.

Officers from the 102nd Precinct responded to an apartment house on 115th Street near Myrtle Avenue and found the body of Rizwan Ahmad in the building’s courtyard, reports said.

Paramedics pronounced the child dead at the scene; his body was transported to the medical examiner’s office for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

The New York Daily News reported that Ahmad’s 21-year-old mother was taken to Jamaica Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, and his 41-year-old father — along with four other residents — were brought to the 102nd Precinct’s stationhouse for questioning.

Presently, no charges have been filed and an investigation is ongoing.
