REGINA, Saskatchewan (AP) - Police in Canada say a child under 12 is responsible for the death of a six-year-old boy on a Saskatchewan aboriginal reserve.

Authorities say Lee Bonneau died in a hospital from injuries that police have said were consistent with an assault.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Staff Sgt. Larry Brost said Tuesday the child cannot be charged because of his age. Police declined to release the age of the suspect. He says the two children did not know each other.

A Social Services spokeswoman says the child is in the care of the ministry.

Andrea Brittin says the department will focus on his treatment and on the safety of the community.
