The autopsy of 11-month-old Jericho Smith determined the baby died of multiple gunshot wounds, stab wounds and blunt force injuries, East Baton Rouge Coroner Beau Clark told our media partners at the Advocate. 

Clark ruled the baby's death a homicide. The baby's father, 33-year-old Fabian Smith, was arrested Saturday and booked on one count each of first-degree murder and second-degree cruelty to a juvenile, the paper reports. 

The infant was found by a neighbor unresponsive, in a pool of blood on a bedroom floor of Smith's house, the Advocate reports. 

Zachary Police Chief David McDavid said Smith told the neighbor: “I done messed up — call 911," the Advocate reports.
