LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 31-year-old Las Vegas man has been arrested on suspicion of child abuse and murder in the death of his 7-week-old son.

Police say Ahmad Moosa was booked into the Clark County jail Tuesday. He was being held without bail Thursday pending a Friday court appearance.

Moosa told police he was babysitting his son Damian at home on Saturday while his wife went shopping. Moosa told officers that he'd been changing the boy's diaper and left to change his own clothes, then returned to find the baby unresponsive.

The father told authorities he performed CPR before an ambulance took Damian to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Doctors say the baby had new and old injuries consistent with abuse, including fractured ribs, a brain bleed and a bruised scalp.
