3-year-old Lamar Roach Jr. died on Tuesday after falling out of a window on the 17th floor of a Chicago residential building.

Chicago Police say the window screen had been pulled inward and that Roach Jr. was "found unresponsive laying on the sidewalk outside of the building" at approximately 10:40 p.m. local time, PEOPLE confirms.

He was taken to Lurie Children's Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. His death is currently under investigation and there are no potential suspects in custody.

Celebrity stylist Law Roach confirmed his nephew's tragic death in multiple posts on his Instagram Story over the last few days.
