An officer was dispatched to Chasteen’s residence about 6:29 p.m. to investigate a report that three small children were playing outside without supervision and the adult inside was unresponsive.

According to the police report, the officer learned from witnesses at the scene that two children, ages 2 and 4, had been playing in the street for 30 to 45 minutes. A six-month-old child was also inside the residence.
