Police are investigating the death of a newborn boy found in an apartment late Friday.

Firefighters were called to a complex on South Peckham Street about 9 p.m. and took a 19-year-old girl to the hospital. Doctors determined that she had just given birth, and authorities returned to the apartment, where they discovered the dead baby, said Sgt. Mike Chlebowski of the Fullerton Police Department.

Police determined that the girl was trying to hide her pregnancy from her parents and have not released her name.

No arrests have been made.
