A 2-month-old boy died days after he was hit in the head in south suburban Monee.

About 8:50 a.m. on Aug. 31, officers and paramedics responded to a call of an infant who wasn’t breathing at a truck stop at 5915 Monee Manhattan Rd., Monee police said.

When they arrived, officers were met with Sevyn Simmons’ parents, who handed off the unresponsive baby, police said.
