The boy was found with head injuries in a Bronx public housing development. Aiden Rodriguez was just one month old.

He was found in the Mill Brook Houses on E. 137th Street in Mott Haven around midnight. Medics rushed the boy to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center where he died.

"He seemed like a nice guy," one neighbor said of Aiden's father.

Detectives were investigating Aiden's death as a possible case of child abuse because of the baby's head injuries.

The medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.
