When they arrived they found the young boy, identified as Dominic Nunn unresponsive inside the home. Paramedics performed CPR and he was rushed to Desert Valley Hospital. Despite lifesaving measures, Dominic was pronounced dead at 7:28 p.m.

The other juveniles in the home went to the temporary custody of the San Bernardino County Children and Family Services.
