A 2-year-old boy died in a Fort Caroline home Tuesday morning, but police said they do not suspect foul play.

Officers said Elijah Smith was staying with his grandparents overnight at a home on West Ashley Manor Way, and they found him unresponsive in his bed about 11:40 a.m.

The grandparents told police Elijah had a cold Monday night and they gave him some medicine for it.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.

Police said the family was cooperative.
