Sacramento police are investigating the death of a 9-year-old boy. His body was found inside a home in the Sacramento suburb of Natomas. That's a community between the airport and Arco Arena.

Sacramento police received two 911 calls from a home there around midnight. When they arrived, they found a boy dead. It appeared he had suffered some sort of blunt force trauma to his head. The victim's father, Phillip Hernandez, is under arrest. Police say the 36-year-old was found walking in a nearby neighborhood.
