HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A 4-year-old boy has died after being found unconscious in a disabled car in north Houston on Friday evening, according to police.

HPD homicide detectives responded to the 200 block of Oriole Street near Yale to a call of a "child locked in a vehicle."

Family members called 911 to report that two little kids were locked inside a car.

When officials arrived, the family had gotten them out. A two-year-old girl was listed as stable, but the 4-year-old boy died at the hospital.

"We don't know how long they were in there. Family members realized they were missing and began looking and found them in the car," Commander Jonathon Halliday with the HPD said.

Officials did not provide further details about what may have caused the four-year-old's death.

It is unknown at this time if any charges will be filed.
